Amerikkka's Most Wanted: Album Review

Ice Cube with the legendary Bomb Squad, need I say more? Ice Cube teamed up with Public Enemy's production group on this album and the result in nothing short of spectacular. The album starts off with the single "The Nigga You Love to Hate" and does not let up for a second after it. He touches on topics from police brutality, to drive by's. Cube however is at his descriptive best on tracks like "What They Hittin Foe?" where he is describing the scene at a crap game.

When he's not callin' ho's ho's or partying or drinking, Cube is droppin' knowledge on tracks like "Endangerd Species"(feat Chuck D). Misogynistic lyrics like on "Im Only Out for One Thing" (feat Flava Flav) and "Get Off my Dick and Tell your Bitch to Come Here" might put some off of this album, not anyone that I know, but the album has a lot more to offer than just that.

The one problem I do have is that the Bomb Squad IS PE's producers. Cube already naturally sounds like Chuck D, and with him (Cube) having his (Chuck)production team it doesnt help that. On the song Chuck guests on its hard to decipher between the two. Other than that the cd is about flawless.

This and Death Certificate are 2 of the best hip hop albums ever made.

They sure were good times in the early nineties. Every artist was at the top of their game, all at once.

Cube, PE, Ice T, EPMD, NWA, Gangstarr, X Clan, Cool J, Redman - Good times, Good Rhymes...
