wow...at the people over rating the fuck out of this song.Its pretty decent,but its nothing special.If some other rapper made the exact same song nobody would be praising but because its cube its somehow amazing.The beat is pretty good,but the guy singing the chorus is kinda annoying and their is nothing good about cubes verses,the lyrics are average and his flow and delivery is a shadow of his old self.

I don't understand how you can not like Cube's new shit but like the new west when most of them are emulating Cube's style? If his lyrics are average, who besides Crooked I is spitting better? How can you listen to a G Malone song or a Jay Rock song and think "this guy can spit", and then listen to Cube and say "this is whack, dude needs to retire"? Shit doesn't make sense when Cube has the same flow and mic presence he had with WSC. As a matter of fact he's better than he was on their last album.

Where did I say it was wack?I didnt.I said the song was average and its being praised as some great westcoast saving song lol.Its an decent track but its nothing special and doesnt hold a candle to cubes previous work.But you attach the name cube to a not wack song and it gets praised as something better then it is on name alone.

who said it would save the west? Nothing's wrong with saying its dope when it is. As far as it not holding a candle to Cube's previous work, its not any worse lyrically than Down For Whatever.

If another rapper made this song it would be dope as well, probably more so because we expect less. Unless you are only talking about the amount of attention the song would receive, but that's because of popularity and would be true for any artist. The rapper with the bigger name is going to have more people listening to the song and commenting on it.

This really isnt dope though,its mediocre.Whats good about it?It sounds like it came out in 1997 and not in a good way.if another rapper made this song it would be passed along like the mediocre song it is.

lol, it's not mediocre, its dope. The beat is straight up west coast, the exact kind of beat all of you have been complaining about wanting to hear. Who the fuck wants to hear some garbage ass hipster beats? Be honest, if game had released a single with this beat you would be on his dick.

umm most people called cube out on this forum for doin tracks with lil jon.... the main complaint about laugh now cry later was the lil jon beats... and the drumma boy sounding track "got my locs on" from raw footage... most west coast heads complained bout those tracks

cube even addressed those complaints on his blog and said he was guilty along with other west coast rappers of following the southern trends..

Youve never changed your opinion of a song before?I listened to it twice,thought it was decent.Then I went back again to see what the big deal of the song was and the more I listened to it the more mediocre it became.Call me a hater however much you like,your the one acting stuck in the past.Cube could drop anything and youd probably call it dope just because its cube.Im not saying its wack or intolerable,thats what a hater would do.Im just criticzing a song that isnt very good.If you cant take it go cry in front of the cube posters on your wall.Maybe elano will hold your hand and you two can reminicse about the goold days of the west

When rappers get older they loose their hungry and that it factor that made them dope in the first place.The music feels forced and manufactured instead of feeling natural.Look at 50 cent,the music he makes now isnt all that different form his music before,his lyrics,flow etc is pretty much the same.Its just missing that x factor,that it,whatever you want to call it,the immeasureable factor in a person.Once he was succesfull he lost it and ti came across in the music.Same with snoop,same with cube.So this song might be alright,but its just cube going trhough the motions and a bunch of people that cant let go of the past that cling to it and think its dope.Fuck outta here,let go of the past,its over,you cant go back to the 90s and niether can these artists.But if you want to listen to this shit and convince yourself its dope more power to you.Its just kinda fucking sad.
