Product Description

Product Description

The Predator


It's true that Cube's third solo album lacked the righteous fury and sonic assault of AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted and the visionary social scope of Death Certificate, but calling it his third-best album is hardly a consolation prize. It remains the last great album that Cube released before giving in to his gangsta-god complex on later efforts. From a political point of view, Cube doesn't bring a whole lot of new ideas to the plate, but musically the album sounds as good as ever with its dark and aggressive beats. Cypress Hill's DJ Muggs lays down some thick, rolling bass lines for "We Had to Tear This Muthaf---er Up," while DJ Pooh jacks a smooth '70s soul loop from the Isley Brothers for "It Was a Good Day," leaving Cube himself to handle the beats on songs such as "When Will They Shoot," with its stomping beat and flinty edge. --Oliver Wang --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is just to tell all wondering what is on this bonus DVD that THERE IS NOT A DVD! I finally got tired with hunting around trying to find out what is on it, bucked -up and ordered it last month from Amazon. Just as I suspected - there is no DVD. I think they mixed up a version of the Greatest Hits CD with this one - you can buy both the Greatest Hits CD and DVD packaged together. Anyhow - there is no DVD packaged with the Predator.
As for the CD itself - no it is not Amerikkka's Most or Deathe Certificate, but it still has a lot on it (though I agree the Gangsta's Fairytale sequel is maaaad weak. When Will They Shoot is bangin' Who Got the Camera? is bangin' - the last reviewer thought Lethal Injection was better than The Predator? Ridiculous! Ghetto Bird, You Know How We Do It, Make it Ruff? Those are - and Lethal Injection is the absolute WORST original [meaning not G/H or compilation releases] album of his career. But that's another review. The Predator has Cube falling a few steps backward, but with enough hot tracks to bury the few weak ones. "Lethal" is another story. Open your ears, loc.

First he was Amerikka's Most Wanted, then he gave us his Death Certificate, now the Predator. On all my reviews so far, I have given him 5 stars and if you don't know about Cube, better ask somebody!! The intro starts off this captivating CD with prisoners getting checked in prison. Then he had me sporting black boots on When Will They Shoot. Today Was A Good Day was a cruising song in the car and not worrying about the police. Now I Gotta Wet Cha', The Predator, and Say Hi To The Bad Guy shows the dark side of the gansta Cube. Don't Trust'em, Check Yo Self, Who Got The Camera, 24 wit the L, and U Ain't Gonna Take My Life are the message songs Cube gives us on every CD that he has made. My favorite song is Dirty Mack, this song was made for haters who were hating on other peoples game. Ice Cube is on fire on his third album and is sitting on top of the highest order of rap. Now if you wanted to be a great rapper, Ice Cube is a rapper you had to study. The king apparently wasn't treated with that same respect on the source which gave it 4 mics. Maybe they didn't want him to get three 5 mic CD's in a row or something. Maybe a misprint because this definitely deserved 5 mics. If you don't have Ice Cubes first three CD's and you are a huge rap fan, you need to cop them!!!!!

Ice Cube - The Predator (Priority, 1992)
After AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted, Kill At Will EP, and Death Certificate, all classics, this album was a step down. Cube didn't really bring it like he did in the past. Ironically, this is the one of his most successful albums due to his singles "Wicked" and the the smash "It Was a Good Day". There are other good songs on here such as "Now I Gotta Wet'cha" and "Check Yo' Self" (the original, which is better than the more popular remix). Whatever fans Cube lost with this album, he sure gained a lot more. -EJR

Calling THE PREDATOR Cube's third best can hardly be seen as a compliment; yes, the sharp lyrics are still there, and the production is still as aggressive and chaotic and funky, but it pales in comparison to the lyrical and sonic assault of AMERIKKA'S MOST WANTED and the thematically sound DEATH CERTIFICATE. Also, Cube's wit, perhaps drowned by his anger, is gone here; and says hardly anything new here--racist cops (e.g. "Who's Got the Camera", "Say Hi to the Bad Guy", "We Had to Tear This Mutha***** Up") white supremacy, racial oppression, the usual. What's new, however, is the theme that the album is built around in. It was 1992, at the time of the L.A. riots, and Cube sounds off charactistically about the outcome of the trials of the four officers accused of beating up motorist Rodney King (in "We have To Teal This Mutha***** Up") and providing inserts about reactions from various people, thus providing valuable insight into what everyday people thought about race and the horrible incident. Cube also displays his storytelling skills in cautionary tales ("Don't Trust 'Em" and "Gangsta's Fairytale 2"). Also check out the superb "Wicked" and some of that Das-EFX flavor in "Check Yo Self". By the end of the album, where a cop is viciously shot and the words "What kind of a cop killer are you?" echo again and again as it fades away, one can't help but think that THE PREDATOR's theme was centered around racist cops, as an arm of white supremacy and oppression in America, and that this recording, despite its third-rate status next to Cube's two previous recordings, was indeed a valiant effort. Sadly, it would be his last great one, as he would eventually drift away from the socio-political edge that defined him as one of rap's captivating and engaging performers.

Without a doubt, this is Cube at his finest. Perhaps not as fresh as his just-post-NWA albums - but the sound, feel, and the layout fit the best of anything I have seen from him before or after this piece. This was the only album of his that I enjoyed enough to listen to EVERY track - not once, but again and again. Cube's feelings appear much the same, but his lyrics are new on this album, too, something which seems to be lacking on later releases. All the tracks here hit hard, with the rage you expect from an album released soon after the Rodney King riots, but with just enough levity (Gangsta Fairytale 2) and positive outlook (It Was a Good Day) to prevent a complete "social injustice overload." Ice Cube was not afraid to be crystal clear about his opinions and even his personal life on this album, either - and much of what he says is just as relavent now as it was almost 10 years ago when this was first released. If you like Ice Cube, and you don't have 'Predator' - make sure to pick it up.
