^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.

If most people are only buying a couple songs off itunes it kills albums sales. I don't know if including bonus tracks actually works but presumably its to get more people to buy the whole album.

I will only buy this album because to add to all my original Ice cube LPs...
other wise i give it 5/10

Really dissapointed overall, sounds like alot of Raw Footage "left overs" for some reason. alot of the wack songs are only 2minutes, and of course wack, so it feels incomplete. the album is only 50 minutes long.
i know it will take time but album will grow on me, was playing it at gym  and in car.
I think album sounds better if you have a good sound system with Sub-woofers, then it has a better feel to it.

Best Songs
1. Hood Robbin
2. No country for Young men
3. Rep that Wesrt
4. Drink the Kool Aid
5. Nothing like LA

Ok Songs
1. Soul on Ice
2. Living in California
3. Fat Cat
4. Too west Coast
5. She couldnt make it on her own ( the beat has really grown on me)

Trash songs
1. Urbanian
2. you all know who i am
3. it is what it is
4. your monehy or your life (what is with the xmas themes beat)
5. allday every day (another xmas beat)

as u can see the best songs actually have west coast beats, whereas the rest have southern beats.

anyway, i would give this album 5/10, cos its incomplete and In my honest opinion, i will say it is his weakest effort to date.

p.s eve nteh itunes songs are 2 minutes long.

i think his next album needs more features like Mc ren and Mack 10

ok i can ALMOST agree 100% with you, and you got a lot real talk at there! +1 for that

Buuuut... LIFE IN CALIFORNIA should be replaced with DRINK THE KOOL AID.... seriously... LIFE I CALIFORNIA is the most WESTCOAST track on the album ?

and Dmnnnnnnnn You're right on that one.......... THIS ALBUM needs Mack10 on it, and XZIBIT and some more Sir Jinx / Chilly Chill produced tracks!! and that is so true...

Cube gotta hook up with better producers! :)

True. Well from the interviews Cube did with Skee TV during the video shoots for the songs, I really think he went with the producers "in awe" of him. Translation- probably free beats for one of their favorite artists. Defnitely that is the case with Bangladesh. I honestly think he had no backup plan after he did not work with Dre. I think Dre would have easily had multiple tracks on this album.

I agreed almost completely with dammaged7.  If you remove Cube's whack sons on She couldnt make it on her own, I'd feel it a lot more.  I like the beat and Cube's verse.  Dub C and Maylay could have put it down on that beat IMO.  Album still hasn't grown on me.  Puttin Lethal Injection on repeat. 8)

I think that's what many artists do who once had big hit singles. I'm not saying any names, but I think everyone here can think of a few artists who do that.
