What can I say to sum my thoughts up other than this album is VERY dissapointing? Overall, Ice Cube is my favourite rapper of all time, and if U can't understand that then U only gotta study his first albums (ameriKKKa's most wanted, death certificate, predator...): they are amazing - his flow, his voice, his beats, his attitude, and more than anything his meaningful, hard-hitting lyrics.
I don't like to hate about Cube, and if War & Peace vol. 2 was ANYONE else's album I'd have given it 3 stars, but i could only give it 2 cos I know how much better Ice Cube could do. Oh, and if it wasn't for the few hits (you can do it, hello, until we rich) which i did think were kinda phat, with HALF decent rhymes, I'd of given it just 1 star.
But maybe its not all his fault, I mean, he can hardly rap about the stuff he used to now he's got money on a huge scale. But neither should he rap about the stuff he does! Ice Cube's a legend in the rap game and it's a real shame to see what he's reduced his style to. I dunno if he's still got talent or if he's just lost all he had, but I can't somehow imagine that's the case.
Ice Cube the rapper is deteroriting album-by-album, and I'd rather he retired now, retaining the legacy he has built for himself, than released another album like this one and went out like a sucker. DON'T buy this album. Sorry Cube man.
