THIS ISNT A ICE-CUBE APPRECIATION THREAD, THIS IS AN ICE-CUBE THREAD THAT'S TALKING ABOUT ICE-CUBE HISTORIC HIP-HOP RUN and HOW HE RAN HIP-HOP FROM 1990-1994
Only a selective few that's far and in between reached the heights that Ice-Cube reached from 1990-1994. ICE-CUBE was the face of hip-hop, the spokesman and King of hip-hop during the revolutionary time and rebellion time in hip-hop, was a resepected emcee and was feared on the mic, he had the fire, the scrowling face, the voice, the classic solo albums, being a part of the greatest hip-hop group in history, a classic movie and a oscar worthy part and the face of BOYZ N THE HOOD, HIP-HOP battle with NWA, one of the greatest rap diss of all times, attacking mainstream hip-hop, attacking the radio, ON MAGAZINE COVERS, NEWS PAPERS ARTICLES, respected and followed in the WEST, SOUTH, MIDWEST, EAST, broke bread with The Hon. Louis Farakhan. The respect from DJ's, B-Boys, emcee's, graffitti artist. and did a I mention the Jherri Curl. ICE-CUBE had hip-hop and the mainstream by it's balls.
ICE-CUBE ruled hip-hop from 1990-1994. It all started in 1988 with NWA's Straight Outta Compton when there was one emcee that caught the attention of hip-hop. A young emcee from the west coast that had that young angry firey voice and who was spitting emcee lyrics with a gangsta twist to it and with MC REN proved that west coast had emcee's but they did their way CALIFORNIA all the way. And the shit that they was talking shocked the shit and paint a picture of urban america that paint it as a warzone, brought the Cali lifestyle, slang to the world. And Cube and NWA had the look. Yeah Ren is a dope ass emcee with an ill voice, Eazy-E had the ill voice, Dre was a dope ass producer and had a ill voice, but it was something about Ice-Cube who was the face of the group.
From 1988-1989 Cube had hip-hop attention with his social, political anger filled lyrics every NWA Ice-Cube was the one speaking for the group. fast foward Cube left NWA and shock the world, people thought Cube couldn't do it with out the world most dangerous crew. Cube went to back East with his cousin SIR JINX and got with Hank and Keith Schocklee, Chuck D, Eric Salder, G-wiz, Kerwin Young who was known as THE BOMB SQUAD and with West Coast producers Chilly Chill and Sir Jinx created a bi-coastal hip-hop classic with Ice-Cube spitting street prophet rage on Amerikkka ill's against the black man, fake ass commerical rappers, fake ass DJ's and that West Coast gangsta shit.
1990 started the Run that hip-hop haven't seen in a long time Ice-Cube became the face of hip-hop till 1994.
