The whole album is out on the net. I haven't listened to it yet, but I do know that when I listened to the sampler I thought I was listening to a cow eating hay.

It's a Cube album though, so I have to give it a chance. Will I buy it? Only if the album pleases me.

sounds like Butch Cassidy is on "Nothing Like L.A." and lol at Game and Snoop talking at the end of "No Country For Young Men"

I'm almost done with the album already, will drop my thoughts after

well after the first listen here are the tracks I'll be throwing on the iPhone:

Soul On Ice
Life In California (Feat. Jayo and WC)
Too West Coast (Feat. WC and Maylay)
I Rep That West
Drink The Kool-Aid
No Country For Young Men
Hood Robbin'
Nothing Like L.A.

the rest is disposable IMO, bland production and to be honest Cube sounded lazy as hell on a few tracks... Raw Footage and Laugh Now, Cry Later > this rushed album  :-\

yeah, that's the biggest problem with this album. the production is bad on a few songs, but Cube really needs to step it up with his flow and lyrics. he did, however, sound really dope on some songs, so all hope isn't lost.

Can't wait to get home and listen to this..
As usual, The hard copy is a must to complete the collection.

But I can't hold out.

Cube should have left off

She Couldn't Make It...(this track could lead to more sales but fuck that)
Y'all Know...(not horrible but not album worthy)
It Is What It Is (DJ Montay??  How about DJ Quik ;))
All Day, Everyday (how does Hallway go from Too West Coast to this  ???)

and thrown Man Vs. Machine and Pros Vs Joes on there to make it a more complete album.

Everything else is hot especially No Country For Young Men and Hood Robbin.  And WC is the shit.

smh i thought it was supposed to be a West Coast album, that was the whole point of the album title... still sounds like a Southern album...

Good album after a first listen, not disapointed except for the hooks which are A LINE REPEATED 50X since 2006

Hood Robbin is the track that stands out for me after the first listen
