shits dope, duno why people are takin it for more than what it is. hes just rappin bout everything bein fucked up on a hard beat.. sounds much better to me than the recent watered down shit over down south beats we been gettin. if his whole album sounds like this, it'll be good. much better than the generic attempts at crossover radio joints.


also, OMG aint the best, but i'd definitely say he's better than Spanky Danky. Doughboy, too.

Ice Cube on Mitt Romney: 'It's Astonishing That People Are Buying That'

Rapper gets political on new single, 'Everythang's Corrupt'

"I don't see how anybody could believe what that man says," says the rapper Ice Cube of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

He's not one to mince words. The West Coast hip-hop luminary's new single, "Everythang's Corrupt," is a no-holds-barred, politically charged record that plumbs the seedy, greedy underbelly that stinks up so much of American society. It's also the title track off his next LP, his first since 2010, which the MC hopes to have on shelves by spring 2013.

Romney features prominently in the new video for the single. "He just reminds me of somebody who's trying to sell me a Mercedes Benz," says Cube. "He'll tell me that it looks good on me and this is my color and I can afford it and everything, just to get the sale. It's astonishing that people are buying into that at the rate they are."

A self-described "political head," Ice Cube says the track speaks to the corruption rampant in everything from politics to education to sports, but he notes that he was particularly inspired by the 99-percenters who spearheaded the Occupy movement. "That right there was basically the classes clashing. You were able to see the power of the rich really trying to step on the poor. It was really clear, it was really in your face. Corruption was in the air and everywhere."

After laying down his lyrics, however, Ice Cube recalls playing "Everythang's Corrupt" and thinking the track needed something to kick it up another notch so he enlisted Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello. Though the two knew each other and had long admired each other's work, they'd never collaborated, and Ice Cube figured this was the perfect chance. He sent Morello the cut without any instructions and let the axe man do his thing. He added crunchy, funky riffs and a screeching solo to close out the song.

The track, of course, comes at a crucial time, with the election right around the corner and political fervor reaching a boiling point. While the song focuses specifically on corruption, Ice Cube hopes it will help people get their "antennas up" about the world around them as a whole.
"When it comes to political hip-hop, it's like beauty it's in the eye of the beholder," he says. "Whatever you get out of this song is intended."

There's plenty to fuel that perspective, and Ice Cube adds that he's been following this year's presidential race rather closely. The rapper praised President Obama for the work he's been able to accomplish despite "a do-nothing Congress and the Party of No," and he hopes if Obama is re-elected, he'll focus on jobs and ending poverty. "We have to deal with that," he says. "We're never gonna give what we need to give as a country if some of our citizens are lower than Third World."

Ice Cube does note, however, that while Everythang's Corrupt will have its fair share of politically charged moments (like the song "Dominate the Weak"), it's not a wholly political record. For instance, there's "Damn Homie," which Ice Cube says with a laugh, is about "a dude that was the shit in high school, and I see him now and he's fat and looks like Homer Simpson."

Everythang's Corrupt also marks Ice Cube's first studio release since 2010's I Am The West, though the MC says getting back into the studio felt easy and natural. "I try to work in a pure way," he says. "Being independent, to me, it's more of a boutique type of deal you should not be a trendsetter, you should kinda do your own thing, and people will appreciate you for that."

I like the concept, but clearly after seeing the video and then reading reading that article that The Predator put up, Ice Cube is shill for Obama just like everyone else in Hollywood.  I agree with everything he says about Romney, but Obama is exactly the same thing.

If Cube was a "Political head" like he says, he would be well aware of that.

And once again, he is trying to stir people up into rioting and shit.  Just like w/ NWA, just like his solo career with "We had to tear this motherfucker up" from the predator album to this shit.

Ice Cube was always about Black Power in Solo work in the beginning. Doesn't Amaze me he supports Obama, he had a record turn out of the black vote because before a lot of em didn't vote. Didn't matter to them because either  way Whitey was gonna fuck em over lease in their view. Also The Predator Album was After the Riots, and the entire point of that album was to capture the Rage of Injustice and the venting that happened during the Riots.

cube's never been a credible social commentator IMO, always had dumb ass opinions in spite of a terrific penmanship, talk about being corrupt when he's arguably a sellout... won't be checking for this,


Ummmm....what? ha

if 'everythang' is corrupt why did he show so much more footage of republicans and right wing sponsored media. doesn't everything mean 'everythang'? appreciate the sound and sentiment of the record, but i'm not sure cube has his finger on what's really going on in the world. it doesn't take a genius to see both parties are bought and paid for, including obama.

should be renamed 'everythang's currupt but i'm voting democrat'.

I agree with you and with the other poster who said Cube doesn't really know what he's talking about. There's plenty of people like him. They just complain and say shit's corrupt, they have no real argument or rational point they're making, just complaining.

I'd rather hear records like "She Couldn't Make It On Her Own" from Cube...if I want politics I'll watch politics. When I want rap shit, I'll listen to rap.

Did Cube know what he was talking about when he discussed race relations and social commentary on his first 3 albums? Just asking

LOL, to an illiterate poster like you, Ice Cube is probably making a very deep point and presenting evidence in a very compelling manner...

Rappers as social commentators have always been superficial and emotional, not evidence based, just complaining about oppression, racism, etc.

I like the fact that DJ Quik never once in his whole career made a "political" record. He's too smart to do shit like that.

West Coast Rap should be fun, energetic, upbeat, ignorant, with the G-funk and the G-shit. Not pseudo-intellectual political discussion. I'm a real intellectual. I don't need rappers pretending.

Most rappers sound like high school conspiracy theorists when they talk about politics...MC Eiht the dumbest of them all.
