If you are reading this review, chances are that you already have or have heard this album and you are upgrading your copy. If that is the case then you know what you are getting is an instant classic. For those new to old school West Coast Gangsta rap, you probably recently watched Straight Outta Compton and have new interest in Ice Cube as you should. To fully enjoy this album you should also be familiar with Public Enemy's music because while the lyrics are all Cube, the musical direction on this album was heavily influenced by Public Enemy's production team The Bomb Squad who produced most of the album. Chuck D and Flavor Flav also guest on 2 songs. The content of the songs are straight street knowledge with some humor added in. After this album Ice Cube went back to the West Coast G-Funk style but this album is absolutely a must have.
