Has anyone been able to buy the actual cd with Pros vs. Joes and Man vs. Machine on it? I went last night to Best Buy expecting the cd they were selling to include the bonus tracks but it only had the original 16 tracks. I then went to Zia Records (a local record shop) and they also only had the cd with the original 16 tracks. So I didn't end up buying anything, I'm holding off until I can buy the album with the bonus tracks included. I know you can download the tracks from Itunes and probably Amazon but I wanted them on the actual cd if that's possible. Anybody got any info on this? Thanks.

By the way I checked out Pros vs. Joes and Man vs. Machine and I think if they would have left out the 5 or so south-style songs and added in these two in their place it would have made for a better album; I intend to make my own version of I Am The West as soon as I buy it.

Those 2 tracks are only on I-Tunes

Damn! I guess I just have to buy the cd as it is and buy the Itunes bonus tracks separately. They better not decide to release a collector edition cd in the near future with the bonus tracks included, that would be messed up.

Just a heads up...you cannot buy the ITunes bonus tracks alone. You must purchase the entire album to obtain them.

This album in total was poor.....

I know that Cube wants to make some banging tracks.... but the productions SUCK'd on the album, besides SIR JINX's "LIFE IN CALIFORNIA", and a few others (the hallway was ok, so was the nothing in L.A.)

Basically, i think cube should hook up together AGAIN with the ORIGINAL LENCH MOB, from the 90's (Sir Jinx, Chilly Chill, J-dee, Yo-Yo, K-Dee, Del etc etc.....) IMO. he should get some more productions from his former group producers Sir Jinx & Chilly Chill... their productions are banging.... just look at Life in California....... Am i right????????

WHAT YOU THINK ????

I remeber one interview CUBE did, he said most the Lench Mob is done they ain't got it no more and that was years ago.  I am not sure how many would work with him again.  Obviously Jinx.  The best beat IMO, as well as lyrics/flow/content is No Country For Young Men. Too West had a similar beat to g Shit from Dub C.  I'm not hatin on Cube but I was expecting a bangin album since it was called "I am the West" and its CUBE.  Imma give Raw Fotage a listen again cuz I didn't feel it when it came out.  Never Know  8)

Yeah i know, they had some problems i think... i read on a lot of interviews that cube never paid them for their work, and therefor they didn't want to work with him or something........ but then another interview i heard that cube said he was cool with everyone of them again now..

And about the album and cube.... Cube is a legend in this hip/Hop & Rap, and when he turns out with an album called "I AM THE WEST" i defently expected more tracks just like the "LIFE IN CALIFORNIA"... the "NOTHING LIKE L.A." ..........   I don't know why Cube wouldn't like to hook up with Scott Storch or some other big producers again........ "Why We Thugs" were off the hook??!!!
But i know all of you expected a lot more when you hear the Title of the Album and when you hear that it's Cube making it.


BUT now let's be positive, I AM THE WEST has some good tracks: Life in California, Nothing like LA, I Rep That West, Hood Robbin.

i aint hating on cube, im a fan, i like his work, i just expected more west coast album!

Scrap "Soul On Ice", change the chorus on "Urbanian" (Google me bitch wtf?!), Cut the annoying sample on "No Country for Young Men", new chorus for "Life In California" a different flow in Cube's verse, exchange "All Day Every Day" and "It Is What It Is" with "Pros vs. Joes" and "Man vs. Machine", change the order of the tracks and you got a pretty cool album. But in this way it's just average WITH the bonus tracks.

"Y'all Know Who I Am" grew a bit on me though...

I can't imagine this album doing very well. It isn't being received well and it doesn't have a big single for it like Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It.

hitsdailydouble predicts it will be around 24-27k sold 1st week. I know Cube said something on twitter that a large majority of Target stores did not even recieve copies of the album.

I like it as well although I could do without 4 tracks and then add the bonus cuts in their place.

This is nothing new. This has been practically the case with every album released in the last couple of years. His last two albums had iTunes bonus tracks as well. Apparently no one except me buys physical copies anymore. You would think there would be some kind of reward for actually going to the record store and picking up the album, instead of missing out on songs.

His last 2 albums the bonus tracks were through Best Buy and Target. LNCL had 4, 2 only Best Buy sold and the other 2 Target sold. Raw Footage had 3 and those were available at Best Buy. This is the first album I can remember from him that his bonus tracks were exclusively on ITunes. Sign of the times I guess.

According to wikipedia, both LNCL and Raw Footage had itunes bonus tracks. Not that I would actually go to any of these stores to verify this.

LNCL had Pockets Stay Fat. Raw Footage had Believe It Or Not. My bad, but yeah normally he would offer bonus tracks with a hard copy purchase from one of those 2 outlets.

well normally you can buy the bonus tracks separately, but according to Laconic you have to buy the whole album first, so that's new to me

Those 2 tracks are only on I-Tunes

Damn! I guess I just have to buy the cd as it is and buy the Itunes bonus tracks separately. They better not decide to release a collector edition cd in the near future with the bonus tracks included, that would be messed up.

Just a heads up...you cannot buy the ITunes bonus tracks alone. You must purchase the entire album to obtain them.
lol what a great marketing strategy

This is nothing new. This has been practically the case with every album released in the last couple of years. His last two albums had iTunes bonus tracks as well. Apparently no one except me buys physical copies anymore. You would think there would be some kind of reward for actually going to the record store and picking up the album, instead of missing out on songs.
well normally you can buy the bonus tracks separately, but according to Laconic you have to buy the whole album first, so that's new to me

umm nope that's always been the case. For both LNCL and Raw Footage the bonus tracks only come along with the album. That's why its called a "bonus" track. Its a bonus in addition to buying the album.

^Literally the first time I heard about something like that. I have bought Physical copies of LNCL and Raw Footage. (LNCL original not the reissues).

Isn't the entire point of Digital stores to get the tracks u want. That defeats part of the purpose imo.
