Product Description


Is it too obvious to note that there's little peace to be found on the second volume of Ice Cube's would-be conceptual set? Throughout The Peace Disc, Cube and guests return to the theme "Keep it gangsta"--which at least partly means projecting an image of embattled, weary, but proud warriors at every turn. While strongly produced and delivered, the songs generally don't signify much that we haven't heard before. A few party tracks ("You Can Do It") and the somewhat softhearted "Until We Rich" stand out, but there's little here really worth mentioning in the same breath as Cube classics as far afield as "It Was a Good Day" and "When I Get to Heaven." --Rickey Wright

3.0 out of 5 stars Heard better Dec 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
Not his best, After buying this (along time ago) I still cant get into it. Just something different, like he didnt spend the time that needed to be spent on this album. Ice Cube is a great rapper, just not this time.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Ice Cube's" comeback? Dec 2 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
I gotta say, after "Lethal Injection" I started to lose interest in "Ice Cube", but with "War & Peace Volume 2", he got me back. Lyrically it's pretty much what we already knew, he's gangsta. But musically I love this album. "Hello" is a tight track, and teams him up with his "NWA" homies. "You Can Do It" is another good one that got on his "hits" cd, and I like "You Aint Gotta Lie (to kick it)", with "Chris Rock". But my favorites by far are "Until We Rich" with "Krayzie Bone", which is a nice bit of g-funk, and the awesome "Supreme Hustle". Those would have been my choices for the "Greatest Hits" cd. The whole disc is good though, inserts and all. Now where's that comeback from "Ice-T"?

5.0 out of 5 stars this album slashes war July 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
war is just bad compared to this. Peace album is much better with 24 mo hours bring back the style of the hit single it was a good day. unitl we rich is a great joint between krazyie and cube. You can do it, hello, ni**a of the century just sparkle up this album. But songs like gutter shi* I thought just degraded the album.
But still a MUST buy

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than WAR Jan. 5 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album almost redeems WAR; now you could make a good single-CD compilation off of the 2 albums. This album leans very heavily on the "peace" side of the equation, though of course it has enough gangsta posturing to stand on its own.
The most obvious "peace" element is the NWA-reunion on the song "Hello" which begins the album. The song itself is only ok, but the reunion itself dramatizes the whole making-peace concept, especially when you consider how heavily Cube slammed Dr Dre, MC Ren et al in "No Vaseline", the last track from DEATH CERTIFICATE (or a later album where Cube yells "Yo, Dre! Stick to producin!"). Working with Dre and Ren on this track is a powerful statement.
The other "peace" tracks are the excellent "24 Mo' Hours" and "Until We Rich". The album includes dancefloor numbers like "You Can Do It" and "Can U Bounce". It also includes some humor - which WAR was almost completely missing - in the somewhat funny "Pimp Homeo" insert and "You Ain't Gotta Lie (Ta Kick It)", and the hilarious "Mackin' & Driving" insert and "Roll All Day", my personal favorite song on the album. The cautionary "Dinner With The CEO" / "Record Company Pimpin'" round out the meat of the album with the words: "Mommas, don't let your kids grow up to rappers. Unless you tell em if they're gonna get in this business they betta lern this business. Or they're gonna get .... Simple as that."
Good stuff. It doesn't have the power of Cube's early stuff, but it proves he still has things to say - maybe different things, now that he's grown up a little. It's enough to make me look forward to another album, where WAR almost made me think Cube might be done as an interesting artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Da fattest there is! Nov. 2 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is full of fat beats and skits and is sure to have you
high for a long time.
'Hello', with Dr Dre and MC Ren is fat as is 'The Gutter [stuff].
The mellow track of the album is also my favourite and that's
'Until we rich' which has Krayzie Bone in it.
The bumping 'You Can Do It' is a popular track that is sure to have you bouncin.
So get a copy!

4.0 out of 5 stars It grew on me May 1 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit, when I first put this CD in I listened to a few seconds of each track before skipping to the next one. My first impression was that the beats were redundant and the mood was typical of Cube. I thought it was a waste of money.
Fortunatly, I didn't throw the poor thing away. For whatever reason I revisited the CD and the songs not only grew on me - but I thought they were pretty damn good!
What is unique about Cube is that he continues to evolve in both style and spirit. Like the late Tupac, he has a confused lyrical approach that mixes violent reality with hopeful optimism. I'm almost certain that the former is reflective of his need to give listeners what they want. The latter is reflective of giving listnerers what they NEED. Songs such as "Until We Rich" probably demonstrate Cube at his best - as well as his true feelings about the Black Populace.
Many of today's rappers lack the depth that Ice Cube brings to his art form. Cube's (and this CD) irony is that, very often he seems beyond the "Gangsta" mentality. Sometimes I feel as if still trying to rap about Guns, ...and Weed trivializes his true character. Simply stated - he walked that path and it's time for him to move beyond it.
