Ice Cube has been a mainstay in the game, having delivered some of the canon's formative records. In fact, it would be safe to call him one of hip-hop's most important icons, given his position as the main lyricist behind NWA. And that's not even diving into his solo career, which has yielded ten official studio albums. Plus, which other gangster rapper has successfully transitioned into a beloved family icon? Cube is one of a kind.
Today, the Don Dada returns with Everythangs Corrupt, an eclectic mix of politically charged anthems, contemporary crossover efforts, and throwback West Coast bangers. On that note, the Too $hort assisted "Ain't Got No Haters" emerges as an instant highlight, evoking nostalgic feelings of vintage hits like "Today Was A Good Day." Despite the braggadocious message, the smooth instrumental sets a docile tone, with the combined efforts of Drew Dixon, Russell Simmons & Warren G (!!!).
Should you be looking for something outside the norm, why not look to the past? Peep Ice Cube & Too $hort's "Ain't Got No Haters" now.
Sorry, y'all, I ain't got no haters
Everybody love black ass Darth Vader
You and your woman love to see me comin'
Come through bumpin', little kids runnin'
Chasin' me down like the ice cream truck
These police, they never light me up
