Man, did Ice Cube REALLY drop a bomb on the hip hop nation with this debut album. After leaving N.W.A., Cube went solo and nothing would ever be the same again. Not many artists can come HARD like he did on their first albums. Ice Cube came harder than anyone else at the time in 1990, and he did it with ease and gusto. One of my personal favorite albums, this album defines what Ice Cube is all about. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: The ENTIRE album.
Production: Thumbs up, one of the first true times that the east and the west hooked up, and the results were AWESOME
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up, like i said, NO ONE was spitting this hard in 1990, ask N.W.A., as they became nonexistant in hip hop after Cube left
Originality: Thumbs up
The Last Word: AWESOME album. One of the greatest albums EVER, Ice Cube represented here, and it shows. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND this album, and as an added bonus, you get the AWESOME Kill At Will EP in its remastered form. Buy this album NOW if you don't own it.
