The album is really mediocre, which is a shame. I had high hopes for this album  :-\

i think ice cube raised the expectation with raw footage lp...
thats why fans were expecting better.
to me, "i am the west" is not better or not even close to "raw footage"
BUT!
it is a fact that new west coast era made a big success and surprise in the beginning of this millenium with many albums and artists following 2001 album of dr. dre... you can count, xzibit's "restless, man vs machine" snoop's "the last meal, paid tha cost to be the Boss" kurupt's "space boogie" warren-g's "return of the regulator" nate's "music and me"... it was like a dream that no west coast fan wants to wake up... but after those golden years, still no dr.dre album, still no snoop album which is good enough, kurupt and daz? im not even expecting a good album anymore from them, xzibit??? dj.quik??? god, wake up people.... west coast music industry sucks for at least 5 years... and its very long time.
BUT!!(part 2)
there is still a west coast legend, who wanna keep the west coast stand in the industry. ice cube is working on a new era... first he tryed it for wc's album "guilty by affiliation" and he succeed... it was just a step for raw footage and raw footage was like a message of new rise of west coast. when you compare "i am the west" with other albums came outta west coast this year, you gonna realize ice cube is not the one you need to blame... i think "i am the west" is a good album and ice cube is still rapping hot and showing his legendary talent... im an huge eminem fan but i can't stand listening "i like the way you lie". and eminem is way more younger then ice cube and he still have many years to be a legend. ice cube is already a legend and he shows us he is still hungry for this shit. just support him people, he is the only one fighting for west coast rap in last couple of years.

he started and still keeping up this gangsta shit!
and this the motherfucking thanks he get? (Hello!!)

This new album does not represent its title.

Just had my first listen, and I have to say that most tracks annoy me more than anything else. How could he have picked these beats? It's more of the same, in a bad way...

Most of y'all are just negative.

For me, I first look at the positive things on the album.
It has a couple dope songs on it I can enjoy (Life In California, Too West Coast, I Rep That West, Drink The Kool-Aid, No Country For Young Men, Hood Robbin', Nothin' Like LA & Fat Cat)

Of course, all in all this album doesn't represent its title like said before. And it has some huge misstakes like She Couldn't Make It On Her Own, weak delivery on some tracks and lyrically not on point. But it is what it is, Cube makes music because he likes to, not to satisfy everyone. He stays true to himself and that's important to me. It's not easy to stay original and relevant after so many years, so for me, I just enjoy what he delivers.

All I'm saying is negativity shouldn't overrule positivity.

I don't know if I should check this out. People say it's worse than Raw Footage, and this was unlistenable for the most part.

It's time for Cube to retire, he should continue to work with WC and support him tho, cause Dub still has it. Let WC drop the albums,  he still knows what an album should sound like.

Well, in the end it's Cube so I have no choice. But I have a long queue and Cube's album is on the last spot now :P

Yeah. All the hype of Dr. Dre production and DJ Quik as well; all to be retracted right before the album drops. LAME. I would've gladly waited for that. Instead we get delay after delay for a mediocre album with nothing at all really. Ice Cube was dope. Too bad its past tense. He should've stayed signed to Aftermath. We probably would've gotten the dopest Ice Cube album ever made.

Or its just not a good album. Why be all positive about a disappointment?

I wouldn't call this original or relevant

All I'm saying is negativity shouldn't overrule positivity.

This is a thread to discuss an album, one which most people feel is weak. Are we supposed to be giving weak albums props now? What is the point of discussing albums if all we are doing is praising every album regardless of quality? It would take away from the great music that actually deserves praise.

All this wait for that! wack album, no quality, some good tracks but damn it's his job!

In january, everybody was claimed it's the Westcoast year, but in fact it's the worst Westcoast year!

The only good albums this year is Mitchy Slick's Yellow Tape and XL Middleton & Young Sau "there goes the neighbourhood"

You exaggerate.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think the album is good, I haven't said that.
The album as a whole is pretty average to me, but I can look through it and light out the positive points so I can enjoy it for what it is.
I actually ment he's not original anymore and neither so relevant but he keeps coming with some dope music, altho it's going downwards. You shouldn't give a weak album props but alot comments are based on dissapointments. That doesn't mean it's wack. It's neither good, but all I'm saying is you shouldn't focus on the weaknesses of the album but start with the positive things.

Most of y'all are just negative.

Or its just not a good album. Why be all positive about a disappointment?
