With benefit of hindsight, we now understand that most rappers are indeed earnest, but few intend their words to be taken with the same weight as a heartfelt proclamation by a guitar-strumming folkie. Ice Cube's third solo release, taken the wrong way, is a hateful tract full of misogyny, anti-Semitism, homophobia, and violently prejudicial remarks toward just about every other ethnic group; anyone missed in this skein was an oversight. However, with the exception of some choice words for NWA's former manager, Cube's remarks are best seen as caricatures--well, OK, grotesques--rather than perspectives. His spoken intros and the way in which the songs broke into episodes broadly hinted at Ice Cube's move into film. Years later, it's easier to ignore the hateful spew and admire the formal innovations featured on this recording, which helped make Ice Cube into a multimedia star. --Martin Johnson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Musically, the record is on point, with great beats and samples. I thought this CD showcased a little more funk in the music than AmeriKKKa's, which was a nice touch. The addition of How to Surive in South Central makes this album essential for 90s hip hop fans.
Album Highlights: The ENTIRE album, even the skits are worth listening to.
Production: Thumbs up.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up, he came politically correct on this one.
Originality: Thumbs up.
The Last Word: Ice Cube had the West Coast ON LOCK with this album in 1991, even more so than N.W.A. at the time with the release of their lackluster album NIGGAZ4LIFE (by the way, check out the BRUTAL dis of N.W.A. on this album entitled "No Vaseline"). Overall, another STRONG RECOMMENDATION on this album, one of the greatest sequels EVER in hip hop. You won't be disappointed if you purchase this.
"The Wrong N---- To F--- Wit" has Ice Cube setting the tone for the entire album as he shows he's not backing down from anything and everything. "My Summer Vacation" is storytelling at its best. One of Cube's many classics, with a superb beat. "Steady Mobbin'" seems more like an introspective into his life as he explains why he has do what he does. "Givin' Up The Nappy Dug Out" is a funny song with a protective dad who won't let her daughter go out with a "shady character" like Ice Cube. "Look Who's Burnin'" is a timeless classic about STD's. "A Bird In The Hand" talks about the hardships minorities face growing up. It has one of best lines on the album "a bird in the hand is worth more than a Bush", a quick shot at George Bush. "Man's Best Friend" is a great song about why man's new best friend is a gun, not a dog because of the changing times. "Alive On Arrival" is the highlight of the album as Ice Cube runs through an unbelievable story beginning with him getting shot and having to go to an overworked, run-down county hospital.Read more ›
