Product Description

Amazon.ca

Back-to-back tracks in the middle of Lethal Injection are all the proof we need that Ice Cube is a great talent. "What Can I Do?" opens with a strings-and-wah-wah motif from an early-'70s blaxploitation film and follows with a "Superfly" tale about a high-level drug dealer. Next up is "Lil Ass Gee," the story of a 12-year-old wanna-be gangster. Just a few years ago he was playing with G.I. Joe dolls, and now he's playing with real guns and making real babies. On both numbers, the rapper's rich, resonant baritone bleeds into the synth strings with a sense of fatefulness that's chilling to hear. But Ice Cube's career is a tragedy. A mesmerizing storyteller, a seductive vocalist, and a brilliantly inventive producer of aural collages, the Compton homeboy has squandered his talent on a vision so poisoned by right-wing racism and sexism that it has lost all credibility. --Geoffrey Himes

1.0 out of 5 stars Work toward the Dream Feb. 10 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Lethal Injection", this is a proper title for this album, because it poses to be lethal to the dream which Martin Luther King Jr. put forward. Ice Cube makes it a point to criticize Rev. King on this album, about how the black community should walk with each other before they walk with their "enemies". Although, there are no "enemies", except that we who promote racial unity are the enemies of those who promote racial supremacy. As Rev. King said, Black supremacy is as bad as White supremacy.
Someone should remind Ice Cube that the majority of his listeners are white teenagers, which is a bit Ironic.
Also, his repeated attack on Christianity as the religion of the oppressors is nonsense. In the sense that you cannot blame God for what human beings do, Christianity states that we are completely fallen, and only by God are we redeemed. He also fights the notion of a "white Jesus", which again is wrong because Jesus was a Jew. So neither whites or blacks can identify with him racially. That is sad thing about ever making a potrait of Jesus as white, without out any concrete knowledge of his appearence, it divides people. Why do we feel it necessary to make Jesus look like us, we are focusing in the wrong direction.
Now, for what I liked about this album. The beats are some of his best.
But if you tend to agree with this album, go over to the book section and buy: A Testament of Hope by MLK Jr.

5.0 out of 5 stars People don't know what they're missing July 10 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is the best cd Cube has ever made, period. Why only 4 stars? I dunno. But this definetely deserves 5 stars because it has the best songs you'll ever hear out of gangsta rap like One Nation (Bop Gun), Ghetto Bird, Really Doe and so many more. I know it only has 12 tracks but, people, listen to the quality on this record...It's phonomenal. I have hardly seen any rapper or music artist, for that matter put so much quality and chance into an album. I hope you go by my word and make this cd a part of your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than the Last Album April 11 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I recieved a different a vibe from this album. He somewhat changed the concept of this album- but not completely. He used less material from the Nation and focused more on the streets like "Ghetto Bird", "You know we do it"... and the original version of "What can I Do?". As we all know that Cube got the single with George Clinton in "Bop Gun" which is cool. The album had started strong but the last two songs were poorly produced. Therefore I had to give it 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cubes Fourth Solo Album Could Of Been Better April 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
The lead lyricist in the N.W.A dropped us with his fourth solo album, "Lethal Injection". Album is overall decent but could of been better because I was expecting a lot more from Cube, but it didn't happen. Some of the stand out tracks are, "You Know How We Do It", "Really Doe", "Bop Gun (One Nation)", and "Lil Ass Gee". Not Cube's best but I definitly recommend you get this album if your a big fan of rap music all together.

Ice Cube is a Legend in the Game.but this Disc while Pretty Good does have Formula Creeping in.the songs that stand out are Ghetto Bird,You Know How we Do It,What Can I Do?(Which Puts America on Notice for The past 400 Years)When I Get To Heaven is a Solid Track.but the rest of The Disc is Formula and starts going down and He hasn't Recovered Yet.still when he is on He can't be Faded.

Lethal Injection is far by the most outstanding Cube's done. He is very forthcoming in political issues and everything else that goes on in this world. There are so many good tracks to listen to on this album...I suggest you buy it not just to build your collection, but to enjoy it...it is the best Cube's done...Peace
