Prediction:

A middling, tired album that rehases a load of old tropes with one, maybe 2 decent tracks on there.

All we can do is hope that's not the case this time. "I Am The West" is the only bad album Cube put out in my opinion.

True, although it had some bangers on it, but overall was a weak project. I'm hoping for some "Raw Footage" quality on this - he should erase all the previous leaks from the tracklist with the exception of "Everythings Corrupt" and "Sasquatch", as they were really dope records.

Some information on this project so far:

Songs:

"That New Funkadelic"
"I Aint Got No Haters" feat. Too Short Produced by DJ Pooh

-EASKI produced one track on here. I believe it's Pocket Full of Evil. Would make sense with the album cover/title.
-Hallway Productionz produced 4 tracks (Take What We Want, Non-Believers, Respect Your Elders, and Ye Without Sin) and an interlude. 2 made the album.
-We Got Hits Productions have some work on here.

More to come soon... 8)

Some of us actually have higher standards than some of you *shock* and won't just listen to tried old half assed efforts by past the artistic prime artists purely because modern rap in itself has fallen so low.

There are other genres, you know?

I can understand that. I realized many many years ago that were not gettin' the old Ice Cube back. It's not the 90's. That's never gon' happen. Things are different now. As long as he can spit somethin' nice over some dope instrumentals, i'm good with that. If the album turns out to be another "I Am The West" then we got a problem though. These days Cube really only talks about his past accomplishments and how dope is. What would you like him to talk about?
Title: Ice Cube - Everythangs Corrupt - Release Date
Post by: Ebony The Enemy on November 26, 2018, 07:09:56 PM
So......
After waiting since 2012 or 2013 with the release of the title track this album is finally set to be released on December 7th.

I'm trippin.

After all my psychotic episodes on his old website forum and signing off every rant with "C.R.E.A.M. CORRUPTION RULES EVERYTHING AROUND ME" in late 2011 then Cube coming out with Everythangs Corrupt and his now stating on instagram and twitter that 12/07/18 is a day that will live on in infamy forever I'm a bit paranoid.

I even did numerology on the release date as follows
12+7+18 =37
3+7=10
1+0=1
1 is spelt O-N-E
Maybe that means Oshea 'N' Ebony
That's how crazy I am.

In the event I'm kidnapped and tortured I just wanna put it out there that all things considered, despite presently living in a facility for the mentally ill and fucking up righteously everywhere I go and being abused, repeatedly for umpteenth years, I've had a pretty good run. More so than some.

Trust me.
Everything truly IS corrupt.
Abso-bloody-lutely EVERYTHING!

If you were bored enough to read all this, could you say a little prayer for me if you're not inclined to salivate over the prospect of my being abused?

I'm not convinced it's dropping on the 7th
He said November 15th or something years ago
I'll believe it if I hear it
Then we've probably heard most the joints on it already so maybe I'll just ignore it
I've definitely got bigger issues than a bloody album to contend with

ok, what the fuck is this shit???

after 6 years he really came out with this?

The whole album sounds like a bunch of leftovers from i am the west. mediocre music, recycled lyrics. The only good thing is Too $hort.

Oh, and thank god WC aint on this one. he aint destroy his discogs with these.

I listened to the album twice. There's some good songs and and bad ones. Way better than "I Am The West" though. I need to listen to it some more. "Bad Dope" is one of those tracks that shouldn't even ended up on the album.  If i'm being honest, some of the songs sound like Cube freestyled 'em.

Damn he really needs to link with Dre or some other Legendary producer and give us a classic already!!! hes needs to leave Laylaw or hallway productions beats alone...seems to be his go to guys for the past few albums and its killing his legacy

Did this actually come out on Interscope? I don't think Cube spent a lot of money on the beats. I wonder if he tells the producers he works with these days that he wants that particular sound, 'cause the beats on "Tomorrow", "Too West Coast", "Sasquatch", "Only One Me", "Fire Water" etc all have similar sounds.

Cube acted like he wrote the first "Friday" when most of it was supposedly written by Pooh. I think Solo talked about it in his new interview with Soren Baker.

aside from some of the beats being kinda repetitive/average in the later half, this was way better than I Am The West and I'd also argue as an album it's better than Raw Footage... need to give it a few more spins before I decide to cop a hard copy or not

Sucks that (mostly young) artists don't invest in proper mastering anymore.

I did a quick background check on dude who mixed and mastered the album (Dave "Dizmix" Lopez) and it looks like he's a seasoned engineer who's worked with Ludacris, Lil Jon, WC, Snoop, Bootsy Collins, Beyoncť, Brandy, Angie Stone + a gang of other R&B artists. Welp, shoulda sticked to engineering instead of mastering.

Ice Cube Talks Alt-Right, Border Wall and Kanyeís Love of Trump

ďIt was a weak attempt to scare people,Ē the Everythangís Corrupt rapper says of the Charlottesville neo-Nazis
By Kory Grow

Rolling Stone

Ice Cube discusses the alt-right, the border wall and Kanye West's love of Donald Trump, as well as his new album, 'Everythang's Corrupt.'

Last year, as people stormed the streets of Charlottesville with tiki torches as a symbol of white pride, Ice Cube didnít flinch. ďIt was a weak attempt to scare people,Ē he says. ďItís just a very weak attempt to make people feel like something was about to happen, or that this movement was out there ready to take over. It just reminded me of some Nazi, Ku Klux Klan stuff, so I wasnít feeling it. I wanted to take their tiki torches and Ö you know what with them.Ē

The ever-outspoken rapper, actor and producer wrote about his contempt for the alt-right on ďChase Down the Bully,Ē a foot-stomping, funky call to arms on his new album, Everythangís Corrupt. ďI just hate bullies, man,Ē the 49-year-old says in a tone that lets you know heís had it. ďItís time for the good people to take over. Weíre not running from nothing. Bring it on.Ē Itís one of many current events he addresses on the long-in-the-works LP, which also includes tracks like ďArrest the President,Ē ďGood Cop, Bad CopĒ and, of course, ďEverythangís CorruptĒ ó a track he released in 2012 with a video that skewered then-presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

ďI think people would beg for Mitt Romney right now to be the Republican president over Donald Trump,Ē Cube says. ďIf we had to go Republican, I think they would want somebody whoís not so selfish.Ē

Although the album isnít entirely political ó lead single ďThat New FunkadelicĒ is his bid at George Clintonís throne and ďAinít Got No HatersĒ is a reunion with ďIt Was a Good DayĒ producer DJ Pooh and his pal Too $hort ó Cube doesnít hold back. And even though a lot has changed in the political climate since he conceived the title, Everythangís Corrupt, he tells Rolling Stone it resonates even stronger with him today when he thinks about whatís going on in the world at large. ďI know thereís controversy on the record, but remember everybody is talked about on the record,Ē he says. ďNobodyís exempt on the Ice Cube record, ícause I think we all pencils that need to be sharpened every now and then.Ē

Why do you think the alt-right feels emboldened to do things like hold marches?
I guess itís the Internet. When you sit behind your little computer, you can be anything you want to be. But then you realize when youíre just sitting behind a computer spewing venom, youíre a coward. So that starts to eat at you and you feel like, ďI got to do something to show that Iím just not a coward in the shadows with these views, but Iím bold enough to step out in front of the public with it.Ē And these people feel empowered by the tailwinds of the presidentís attitude. So they come out and they show they ugly face.
It seems like the media has been paying more attention to the alt-right, too. And maybe they shouldnít so much because it just gives them a platform.
Well, you canít ignore cockroaches, you know what Iím saying? [Laughs] You got to do something about it or itís going to just crawl in the corner and more are going to come out. Now thatís just an analogy, but at the end of the day, when people are totally against what you believe in, thereís no way you can see eye to eye. They want us to go backwards and weíre not going back.

Another thing you addressed in ďChase Down the BullyĒ is Trumpís border wall. What do you make of that?
Itís dumb. Itís a waste of money. Itís kind of pathetic. Itís sad when you got to put up a fence around your house. Some people feel like they need it, but all youíre really doing is closing yourself off to the world. Walls, all they do is build division. [Pauses]. I donít think heís going to get it. Heís running out of time to get that done. A year from now, heís going to feel like a lame duck.

You went hard on Trump on ďArrest the President,Ē saying heís ďRussian intelligenceĒ and treats the White House like a trap house. What was the tipping point that made you feel like you had to write that song?
I wrote it after the summer. It just fit the mood and the feel of Everythangís Corrupt, and [corruption] starts at the top. Iím not saying it wasnít corruption before President Trump got there, but people are going to jail. People getting indicted. Donít tell me that itís a ďwitch huntĒ; thatís just not true. So something ainít right. And that ainít me hating. Thatís just me observing.

    ďWhen youíre just sitting behind a computer spewing venom, youíre a coward.Ē

Do you think Trump will be locked up?
I donít think the president is going to jail. I just donít think the country can stomach that embarrassment. Thereís going to be some provision or something nobody knew about that they pull out they ass that says we canít lock him up. But all these other people getting locked up, and thatís just a shame. The buck stops with the president. And Iím not hating on the man. I just donít think heís president material. Itís very embarrassing. Heís violating the country in a lot of ways. Every day itís something. Itís just every day.

Kanye West sat down with Trump in the Oval Office this year. What would you say to Trump if you had that chance?
I donít think I would. Why should I do him a favor and tell him whatís wrong? He probably already know. He probably donít care, so itís a waste of my time.

What do you make of Kanyeís support of Trump?
Itís a free country. To me, itís misguided, but itís a free country. Sometimes you got to let people have their political views. I donít know if you should measure yourself on being friends or not friends with people whoíve got different political views than you. I think thatís a little childish. Somebody donít believe the way you believe, he ainít my friend. Come on. I feel like [with Kanye] Itís misguided support, but to each his own. I ainít hating on nobody or mad at nobody. I donít understand it, and Iím not feeling it.

Everybodyís got an uncle they donít agree with.
You canít throw him away just because you donít agree with him. That ainít cool. That ainít how it work.

What inspired the song ďBad DopeĒ on the record?
Just seeing so many people getting on pills and seeing people on all these super hard drugs from crack to meth. Iím like, these drugs are fucking you up, and Iím saying, ďYo, I could compare myself to that and people will understand what Iím talking about,Ē like Iím a bad drug about to fuck you up. So I approached the song like it was a bad trip, like you got a bad batch of dope and itís fucking you up and the song sounds fucked up.

Something about that song and the one after it, ďOn Them Pills,Ē also got me thinking about what Dave Chappelle said about the opioid epidemic, too. He said the White House is treating opioids differently than the Reagan Administration did with the crack epidemic was because of race.
Thatís probably true. I donít doubt it. We canít be shocked when white people are treated better than black people in America. We canít be like, ďOh, whatís this about? Wonder whatís going on behind this? Hmm?Ē Itís like, come on, yíall. Stop bullshitting. We know why itís like that. We already know the diagnosis, letís cure the disease. We know itís there. And nobody wants to do that part.

    ďA year from now, [Trumpís] going to feel like a lame duck.Ē

Even if you think everything is corrupt, you still want to fix it.
Yeah, and the first thing is to recognize your house is dirty, and youíre like, ďI better clean up, or Iím gonna be a hoarder.Ē [Laughs]. I gotta recognize that shit is getting out of hand. Itís just gonna get more out of hand. So hopefully [the record] is shaking people and waking them up, saying, ďHey, hey, hey, this ainít how itís supposed to go. Letís go figure this out.Ē

Since youíve been working on this album since at least 2012, how did it change over the years?
I got a lot of records that didnít make it for whatever reason. Some of them were dated. Some records stood the test of time. It was a process of finding the time and really saying, ďYo, this is my time to work on the record,Ē and then letting myself become inspired. You got to hold your water a little bit until these concepts and lyrics organically come to you, and then you go to work. So I had to pick up the record and put it down because of Straight Outta Compton, the movie, and because of [the rapperís basketball organization] the Big3. I didnít want to cheat the record. At the end of the day, these are the records to me that represents Everythangís Corrupt. I probably still have great records that I didnít put on here, but those records donít represent the concept of the album.

Did you try to challenge yourself or try anything different on this one?
Not really.

No?
I wanted it to be in my wheelhouse. The only thing I did that was very experimental is ďThat New Funkadelic.Ē Thatís me trying to recreate what Funkadelic was to me. It was experimental, but it was very fun.

How did that come together?
We started the track from scratch. My man, T-Mix, made the music. Thereís no samples in there. To me, itís just a perfect remake of what that was, but up to date for now and talking about the West Coast, because P-Funk went to G-Funk, and that whole marriage is already great and welcomed.

Have you sent it to George Clinton yet?
He loved it. He just sent me a video of him listening to it, going off, talking shit and just loving the song, that we got the DNA. Thatís all I wanted to hear. Thatís all I needed to hear.

Rap has changed a lot since 2010, when you put out your last album, I Am the West. Did you concern yourself much with what had been going on?

No, because I think that that was the issue with I Am the West: I was trying to be super experimental, and thatís good to a certain extent. On this record, I wasnít worried about nothing else but Ice Cube fans and to give them exactly what they expect from me. I approached the record with the thought that Iím going to just do records that I know I can do great. It might not be the ones they play on the radio, but itís the ones my fans are going to love.

Now that the record is out, what are you working on next?
Iím trying to buy 22 regional sports networks. Thatís all my head is about. I believe that some of the gatekeepers thatís been holding the reins in sports over us for so long need to go. Itís time for some new blood to produce and present sports and culture, not only to America but the world. Itís time for new people that think in a new and different way have some control over what we see and what we get because the way the [regional sports networks] are being run now is pretty dismal. I think the sports world should hope that we get it.

What do you want to do differently with them?
Just add some life to it. We donít wanna give away the secret sauce, but we have a plan thatís 10 times better than any plan thatís out there. ĎCause nobody sees this and the growth potential like us, period. Nobody.

    ďItís very embarrassing. I feel like [Trumpís] violating the country in a lot of ways.Ē

Howís the new Friday movie coming along?
It moves fast and then it slows down for business reasons, but we gonna get there. This is something Iím dedicated to making sure it happens, because the fans want it so much. So as entertainers, itís your job to at least give the people what they want sometimes.

I read that you had asked Chris Tucker to be in it but you havenít heard back yet.
Me and Chris, we hit each other all the time. We see each other every now and then. We very cool with each other. Itís still that everybody gotta do whatís right for them in their career. So when itís time to shoot the movie, I hope heís ready.

Is DJ Pooh, who co-wrote the original Friday, helping out with this one?
Yeah, heís helping me write it. We just got the Celebrity Deathmatch show, too, so Iím definitely having him help me with that. Heís a super creative dude. Heís a genius. Just underrated.

He produced ďAinít Got No HatersĒ on the new album, too.
With him, we can work through telepathy and itíll come out dope. He produced ďIt Was a Good Day.Ē When we got our heads in the right place, good stuff happens.

This year marked the 30th anniversary of the Straight Outta Compton album. What strikes you about it when you listen to it now?
We listened to it a lot when we were producing the movie, and it holds up. I still donít like ďSomething 2 Dance 2Ē; I still wish that record never saw the light of day. And I wish we wouldíve used the original ďDopemanĒ and not the remix on the record. I still have the same things I would do to make it better than what it is, even though I think itís a pretty perfect record. So I still love it. The first three tracks Ö the first four tracks, you just done. You gotta be hooked.

Getting back to Everythangís Corrupt and how bleak some of it is, where do you find hope these days?

In the spirit of good people. I still think thereís way more good people in the world than bad people. The good people just care if they get in trouble. The bad people donít. Thereís so many good people, weíd be crazy to let these few evil, Omen, Damien kind of geniuses walk around and blow us all up.

Yup. I'm not really sure what people are complaining about. This record is fire and gets better with more spins. Worst song is probably Bad Dope but it's at least a cool concept track that fits in nicely between Don't Bring Me No Bag and On Them Pills.  There are so many good songs and it's hard to pick a favorite. Can U Dig It? is good shit, Fire Water hits hard and so does Still In The Kitchen and Chase Down The Bully. I can pop this bitch in and just let it play until the end 8) 8) 8)

people are complaining about who is in charge of mastering the album ruined many good songs. they are already good songs but with a better mastering they would sound more dope.

Well Cube said Everythang's Corrupt, I guess that includes the mix/mastering lol ;D. No but for reals, I got the cd, I've been bumping that shit hard as fuck and it sounds pretty good to me, haven't checked it on headphones or studio monitors tho'.

The album is pretty dope, there's a couple tracks I don't like, mainly cuz of the south/trap beats, other than that it's solid. I think EC it's better and more cosistent than IATW, although IATW did have it's bangers. Cube just needs to stop using dem trap beats, aint no one checking for Cube for trap music. He needs to go straight West Coast wit it, front to back, and make a classic already; lyrically he's still got it and always has something to say. That New Funkadelic almost brought a tear to my eye LOL, just cool to hear him on some ol' Bop Gun shit again, that's my shit!!!

Not sure if it's been talked about already but were's WC at? I'm surprised he didn't get down on EC. Any word on a new project from Dub?

I get so sick of people complaining that it's not another AMW or Death Certificate like that in DX review. If that's your standard for new music, your life is going to be very disappointing.

Album is nice, judge it on its own merits.

Also, how are you going to write this line--Cube has proven his staying power is stronger than Gorilla Glue--and talk about Cube having corny bars?

This. Couldn't agree more.

Cube stated back in 1992 (when The Predator came out) that he does all of his albums differently. HipHopDx and XXL are being unreasonable. What do these critics want (besides payola)?!? Granted, Cube has done individual songs that were wack ("Crowded"), but entire albums that were wack from beginning to end? None to speak of, in my opinion. Some Cube albums are stronger than others, but all of them are decent, if not classic from start to finish (I Am The West is probably his weakest album overall, but even that one had some great songs among the suckjobs, for example).

As far as the new one....I pretty much like all of it now. The production on a few tunes took some getting used to ("Fire Water" and "Bad Dope"), but it's all good now for me after a few listens. Flow-wise, I thought Cube was on-point on every track except maybe "Non-Believers." The song is still entertaining, but some of Cube's bars on the verses sounded a little "choppier" than they should have, given the beat. The lines on that one could have been lengthened a bit. Still, the content of the verses on that song (and all of the others) was fine.

To me, this is the first album Cube's done in ages where I honestly cannot name a single song that could be termed 100% wack w/ nothing to redeem it. Sure, people's opinions will vary re: songs they like/dislike depending on production or subject matter, and that's cool. But here's what I mean: Cube's last five CDs (War & Peace Vols. 1 and 2, LNCL, RF, and IATW) all had some classic joints, and they also had some decent-to-average songs, but each of them also had at least one-to-three suckjob songs that I would hear and think, "Come ON, Cube! You can do better than THAT!" Examples: "Limos, Demos & Bimbos," "If I Was Fucking You," "Can U Bounce?", "I Got My Locs On," "She Couldn't Make It On Her Own," "It Is What It Is," and "All Day, Everyday," to name a few that I still can't get into even today. But on EC, while I like some songs more than others, I can't name a single EC song where I found myself thinking "that song's beneath Cube's talent" the way I did for certain songs on the last five CDs he put out before this new one. For instance, "One For The Money" might not be my personal favorite, but it's decent, and I could see where someone else could possibly consider it one of their favorites, b/c the beat pounds and Cube sounds like he's having fun. So while I might not love "One For The Money," I do at least like it. Or, take "Fire Water." That song's production might not be to everyone's taste (it sounded weird to me the first time I heard it), but the lyrics and Cube's flow are fun and entertaining (and I kind of got the impression that "Fire Water" was meant to be more of a "just kickin' lyrics for fun" type of song to provide some variety after the political and drug-related songs).   

Right now, my favorites are "Arrest the President," "Chase Down The Bully," the title track, "Good Cop, Bad Cop," "On Them Pills," "Can You Dig It," "That New Funkadelic," and "Still In The Kitchen." But every song has at least something to recommend it, in my opinion. I'd give it a 4 out of 5 right now. But that's just my opinion....PEACE!

I know....Unbelievable...And then XXL claims that he "lacks finesse..." SMH...As far as I'm concerned, I think that the hate that most Cube projects have received from mainstream critics from 1998 (when War came out) to today comes down to two simple things:

(1). Ageism. Music critics in most genres (except maybe Jazz and Blues) don't show a lot of respect to older performers. I think what happens is that music writers are told by their bosses to push the newer, younger artists and claim that their newest records are the shit (whether they are or not), while older artists get short shrift, even if their new stuff is dope.

(2). I think that a lot of critics (esp. on the East Coast) are still pissed at Cube b/c of the "Bow Down" CD (Westside Connection). During that period, Cube, Mack, and Dub (on interviews) basically told the truth about what was going on w/ media people in N.Y.C., about how critics there act like East Coast rappers walk around w/ halos over their heads and can't do any wrong, while anyone not from the east coast is considered "wack" or "not 'real' hip-hop." I have back issues of mags from the early-to-late 1990s of The Source, Vibe, XXl, and other publications, and in almost every review section, they would praise the hell out of the new NYC rap releases for that time, while new stuff from the West and the South would only get, say, three or three-and-a-half mics out of five. So in my opinion, Cube, Mack, and Dub knew what they were talking about. But the N.Y. critics didn't like getting called out like that.

Don't get me wrong--the War and Peace discs (for example) were not Cube's greatest CDs--both of them had some songs that, for Cube, were marginal (to put it nicely), as did I Am The West, which is probably Cube's weakest overall CD (although it still had some dope tracks). But for critics to call him "corny" and act like he's fallen off completely is out of line. The plain fact, to me, even if critics won't admit it, is that Cube pissed them off w/ the "Bow Down" CD (and the whole Westside Connection project) and they're now out to "get" him. Period (which might be inevitable when you have a song that says, "Fuck all the critics in the N.Y.C.," but hey. If you can't take the heat....LOL)! Giving Cube bad reviews makes these critics feel big (I still remember when Peace came out, XXL tried to claim that it was wack by comparing the lyrics of the first verse of Death Certificate's "My Summer Vacation" w/ the third verse lyrics of Peace's "You Ain't Gotta Lie To Kick It," and then saying some smart-ass shit like, "It's not the same, is it?" I'm thinking to myself: "Hey Einstein...FYI, 'My Summer Vacation' was intended as a street/story song, and "You Ain't Gotta Lie" was intended as a comedic party track. Unfair comparison. Of course they're going to be different!" But like I said, I think the person who wrote the review just wanted to be a dick).

Bottom line: In my opinion, Everythang's Corrupt is Cube's best overall CD out of all his "new millenium" CDs, and it shouldn't be slept on!

Well
As much as I carried on like a delusional nincompoop over Everythang's Corrupt I haven't actually listened to it.
I've heard the title track, New Funkadelic, Arrest The President and the spoken word version of Fire Water but it really didn't get much play on social media and I couldn't be bothered listening for a whole hour despite my deranged obsession with the album for the last 6 years. I liked the spoken word in terms of it being spoken word but hearing Cube refer to himself as a cannibal really didn't do it for me.

Finally gave this another thorough listen, great album but production could've been a little better. Definitely going back to listen to tracks like 'Ain't Got No Haters' & 'That New Funkadelic".

I agree this is probably his last album but I don't think he's been deterred by poor sales. Rapping is his most notorious medium - he releases a project here and there for the fans and to remind everyone of his roots. New generations were introduced to him as an actor and probably haven't checked his catalogue, nor can they relate. His target market has grown up and very little of our disposable income is spent on music. Artists don't make money on album sales anymore, it's just the way of the business (Apple Music, downloading etc). The more shows he does, the more sales spikes he will get but ultimately if you're trying to generate revenue these days, then shows and appearances are everything. The album allows you to tour, not much more...

Overall, I think the album is good, there are a lot of cool songs. Chase Down the Bully bangs hardddd

I MEAN METALLICA RELEASED AN ALBUM 2 YEARS AGO AND WENT PLAT OFF THEIR NAME ALONE

ITS ONLY IN HIP-HOP WHERE THE LEGENDS GET NO RESPECT

I WONDER IF 2PAC WAS ALIVE AND MAKING MUSIC, WOULD HE PUT OUT AN ALBUM AND ONLY SELL 8,000 COPIES THE FIRST WEEK? SOUNDS CRAZY, BUT IF CUBE DID, ITS DEFINITELY POSSIBLE.

I might have to cop a hard copy of this, album grows on you more with each listen  8)

Do it. Well worth the money. I picked up the CD. Was hoping for vinyl but I donít believe any copies were pressed. And definitely agree...the more you listen to this the better it gets. I donít skip ANY songs. Even Bad Dope has grown on me 8)

Well
As much as I carried on like a delusional nincompoop over Everythang's Corrupt I haven't actually listened to it.
I've heard the title track, New Funkadelic, Arrest The President and the spoken word version of Fire Water but it really didn't get much play on social media and I couldn't be bothered listening for a whole hour despite my deranged obsession with the album for the last 6 years. I liked the spoken word in terms of it being spoken word but hearing Cube refer to himself as a cannibal really didn't do it for me.


thats because u donít really care for the music as much as u care for cubes nuts in yo mouf :banana_dsf:

I'm nuts enough as it is
Don't need Cubes

happy new year

Finally gave this shit a listen coz I needed something to distract me from the monotony of exercise so I'm actually surprised I don't hate it as much as I thought I would.
Love the hook on Streets Shed Tears. I got like 4 songs left to listen to so I'll reserve judgement but I gotta say I had a real confused look on my face when he rhymed "funny" with "the Easter bunny"
"What the fuck?" was my initial reaction to alot of his attempts at punch lines.
Cube said himself there's more money in film than music and he's been on the big screen ALOT lately so it's safe to say he not missing no meals despite poor record sales.
I'm just glad I didn't hear any direct threats towards me which drove my obsession with him and this album these last year's. And yes. I know how stupid that sounds. Just as stupid as Cube rhyming bout Isaac Newton. He should of said something bout Huey Newton.
As late as I am to the table I like this album alot more than IATW and I wanna thank Cube for that rhetoric bout bitches with fake this and that like he ain't into it coz I compare myself to women who have had plastic surgery and feel inadequate even though I've basically written off any future dalliances with the opposite sex.

So, happy new year Sccit.

I agree this is probably his last album but I don't think he's been deterred by poor sales. Rapping is his most notorious medium - he releases a project here and there for the fans and to remind everyone of his roots. New generations were introduced to him as an actor and probably haven't checked his catalogue, nor can they relate. His target market has grown up and very little of our disposable income is spent on music. Artists don't make money on album sales anymore, it's just the way of the business (Apple Music, downloading etc). The more shows he does, the more sales spikes he will get but ultimately if you're trying to generate revenue these days, then shows and appearances are everything. The album allows you to tour, not much more...

Overall, I think the album is good, there are a lot of cool songs. Chase Down the Bully bangs hardddd

I MEAN METALLICA RELEASED AN ALBUM 2 YEARS AGO AND WENT PLAT OFF THEIR NAME ALONE

ITS ONLY IN HIP-HOP WHERE THE LEGENDS GET NO RESPECT

I WONDER IF 2PAC WAS ALIVE AND MAKING MUSIC, WOULD HE PUT OUT AN ALBUM AND ONLY SELL 8,000 COPIES THE FIRST WEEK? SOUNDS CRAZY, BUT IF CUBE DID, ITS DEFINITELY POSSIBLE.

I agree, rappers are the low end of the totem pole. They suffer the most, primarily because of their content I believe.

I think he still will release music but maybe not as an actual CD he will just release songs or albums through Internet I think thatís the new thing Maybe he will sell the songs through his website or anything but in a few years from now there will be no more CDs
And honestly sure Iíll like a new cube song from time to time but when I go to an ice cube concert
I want to see him perform his old classics  ;D

Yup. I'm not really sure what people are complaining about. This record is fire and gets better with more spins. Worst song is probably Bad Dope but it's at least a cool concept track that fits in nicely between Don't Bring Me No Bag and On Them Pills.  There are so many good songs and it's hard to pick a favorite. Can U Dig It? is good shit, Fire Water hits hard and so does Still In The Kitchen and Chase Down The Bully. I can pop this bitch in and just let it play until the end 8) 8) 8)

people are complaining about who is in charge of mastering the album ruined many good songs. they are already good songs but with a better mastering they would sound more dope.

Well Cube said Everythang's Corrupt, I guess that includes the mix/mastering lol ;D. No but for reals, I got the cd, I've been bumping that shit hard as fuck and it sounds pretty good to me, haven't checked it on headphones or studio monitors tho'.


Finally took the time out to check out the iTunes and CD version and bumped it on a nice stereo, in the car and on various headphones (Sony in-ears, on-ears, Marshall, Shure, AKG, Beats) and came to the conclusion: the album sounds alright on most systems, but certain songs are clipping like a muthafucka (mostly on headphones). Worst 2 tracks quality-wise are "Fire Water" and "Street Shed Tears" (hook!), some are slightly clipping ("Chase Down The Bully", "Don't Bring Me No Bag", "On Them Pills"). Also noticed that there's a tiny skip at the end of "Good Cop Bad Cop".
Next time Cube should definitely outsource the mastering part. Guess that's wishful thinking tho, lol.

Cube did an Everythang's Corrupt tour in Australia in 2014.

I don't see a worldwide tour for this album.

Interscope financed it.

Cube already got his cut.

He came.
He delivered.
It wasn't received as much as anticipated.
Even the Everythang's Corrupt hashtag on twitter died after a month.
Much of Cubes older audience are too busy trying to feed their children's consumerism needs to be rushing out to buy themselves anything.

I agree that after all those singles which sucked the big one the album was refreshing to hear Cube delve back into some of his older flows instead of trying to sound current.

If he does tour this album that's on fans to get promoters and touring companies willing to fork out the incentive.

I don't know how much Cube charges for a performance but I do know WC's connect quoted 7k and as much as you can guarantee he'll be on stage with Cube, logistically I'm not sure anyone going to take the risk to finance another EC tour.

Man who fired gun near sold-out Ice Cube concert in Del Mar pleads guilty

January 23, 2019
KUSI Newsroom

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) Ė An Escondido man who pulled out a gun and fired two shots in the air when he couldnít get a ticket to a sold-out Ice Cube concert at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, prompting a sheriffís deputy to shoot him four times, pleaded guilty Wednesday to discharging a firearm in a grossly negligent manner.

Daniel Elizarraras, 22, faces three years in prison when he is sentenced March 4. A charge of assault on a peace officer with a semi-automatic weapon was dismissed as part of the plea.

Elizarraras had faced up to 19 years behind bars, said Deputy District Attorney David McNees. The defendant pleaded guilty on the day his preliminary hearing was scheduled to begin.

Prior to the shooting last Sept. 2, fairgrounds officials had determined that the venue was at capacity and turned people away from the horse races and the concert by the rapper Ice Cube.

Fights broke out between security guards and would-be concert-goers who were upset that they werenít going to be allowed into the show, witnesses said.

Sheriffís Deputy Tyler Eikermann ó an 11-year veteran of the department ó saw Elizarraras raise a silver-colored firearm and shoot into the air in a large crowd by a ticket booth, prompting the deputy to pull out his Taser, but it was ineffective, authorities said.

Eikermann pulled out his firearm and shot Elizarraras four times when the defendant lower his right hand and pointed his semi-automatic weapon at the deputy, according to prosecutors.

Elizarraras was hit three times in the torso and once in the arm. One bullet is still lodged near the defendantís spine, McNees said.
