Now this collaboration isn't perfect as some of the picks for songs I find questionable. "Natural Born Killaz" is available on so many albums, including Featuring Ice Cube, still in print today that it's a track that wouldn't have been missed if it wasn't picked. "Ghetto Vet", "You Can Do It", "The Wrong N' To F' Wit", "Roll All Day" are also available on Cube's solo albums. Last but not least, with the exception of "We Be Clubbin'", there were 3 Ice Cube tracks from The Player's Club soundtrack & instead of picking the strong songs like the "We Be Clubbin' Remix" or "My Loved Ones", they picked the weakest track in "You Know I'm a Ho" with Master P. Tracks like the previously mentioned unused ones from The Player's Club or Westside Connection tracks like "Let It Reign" from the Thicker Than Water SDTK or the unreleased dirty version of "It's Tha Holidaze" from Friday After Next SDTK would have made suitable replacements for these tracks.
Besides that, this is a good collaboration for those "new school" Ice Cube fans who aren't able to get these rare & out of print songs elsewhere. From old school classics like Friday, The World Is Mine, How To Survive In South Central to his more recent tracks like Anybody Seen The Popo's (XXX: State Of The Untion) & Right Here Right Now (Blade II).
I recommend this for fans of Ice Cube who don't really have anything of his past his solo albums but if your a hardcore Ice Cube fan who already has everything with his name on it...this is something you can pass on as there really isn't anything new on here.
I like the fact that Cube has been in the rap game for over 20 years and has figured out that he can still be relevant without having to stoop to the silly "keeping it real" crap that has watered rap down to the point that I no longer listen to newer artists.
For people that where not fans of Cube during his early career this album will turn you off. For Cube fans it serves as a template for some of the better Ice Cube cuts. Though for the life of me I can't fathom why he did "You can do it" Little Kim.
