I've been a fan of Ice Cube since his NWA years but I didn't really get stuck into his music when he left until he released War & Peace, vol. 1. Known to be my first Ice Cube album, I was both impressed and disappointed. How can this be called a Greatest Hits album when some of his greater songs aren't even on this. Where's the classic diss song, "No Vaseline", and the song featuring Krayzie Bone, "Until We Rich"? Those were classic songs that Ice Cube had ever released. On a more positive note, there are some of his better works on here like "N*gga Ya Love to Hate", "Hello" which is probably the highlight on this album since it features Dr. Dre and MC Ren, two other members from NWA. "Bow Down" is another great track with a memorable tune, "You Can Do It" is a good song but it wasn't that great. The classic song, "It Was a Good Day", (scoring somewhere in the 30's in the 'Top 50 Rap Songs') is another gem on the album and "Late Night Hour" is a great song, produced by the Neptunes, containing re-written pieces from some of NWA's earlier classic hits. I heard that his 3 earlier albums were much better and I will be getting them soon but if you want to bang some loud music on the streets, get this.
