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.

i don't agree with you or Matty,. ice cube knows what he is talking about & has better idea then both you no name broke niggas. just because you don't agree with him does not mae him wrong & you right at alll . instead it makes ice cube right & both of you wrong . ice cube is always been some what of political rapper & that is one of main reasons he is so big of legend . so always expect something political with ice cube or you never were a true ice cube fan ever. ice cube has real argument or rational point but you are too dumb see it .

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.

there was a quik interview in the last couple of years where he saying about how young people should join the armed forces and there are lots of good opportunities there. it's a sad state i guess, but personally a bit of a face palm. remember others saying the same thing about his comments at the time. but like you mentioned at least he's not trying to talk about that stuff in his music.

the problem with this record is the vagueness of the message. for me we're living in a time where misinformation and denial is peaking for the whole of western society. different to some of the inequality and social issues spoken on by rappers previously. big picture, entire global financial/political system level stuff, deeply embedded corruption. it's not reasonable to expect anyone to have it all figured out, but i would expect something more explicit for 'everything's corrupt' to have any meaning this late in the game. maybe suggesting people don't vote for either major party or don't vote period.

and this isn't hating on cube...the sentiment is there, but the details are lacking. without good, organised information it just leads to helplessness. the silence is deafening from the hip hop community in regards to politics in 2012. or it's off the deep end with conspiracies. this effort is better than nothing, but i can't see how it's particularly helpful. maybe he'll explain his outlook in more detail on the album. i think locksmith has a lot more relevant things to say on a record like this...

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

not really either, but that doesn't take away anything from the relevance and classic status of these.

Eh some acts are political others prefer to be party oriented. Never had a problem because each act was doing it's own style, and it's not like Ice Cube was the Only hypocrite in the game. Almost every act in rap has been hypocritical one point or another for example Cypress Hill while never hypocritical when it came to the subject of weed, used to diss rappers for coming out with Fashion Lines at the same time they Debuted Joker Clothing. They even used to diss rap acts for having pop songs set up as singles for hardcore albums (Heres looking at u Biggie u fat fuck).

Shit Ice Cube stop talking about 8-Ball moment he become a sponsor for St. Ides, He even mentions in his music he did it 4 the money. Dr. Dre did a Anti-Violence PSA because of a Court Order, for beating down the bitch from Pump it Up. 2pac Preached Blacks needing to wake up, yet sold out his political ambitions moment he signed to death row and released a Generic G-Funk album. Eminem talks about hating faggots but supports gay rights. Eazy E Supported 1 officer from the Rodney King Incident. 

Take the music for what it is, because when you listen to the artist in a interview, they'll either be Completely different have a different view then what they are on a record usually.

or just maybe stop trolling for a moment and use some common sense instead of just taking talking points from an Alex Jones Show and a Michael Moore flick. 


but yeah, we probably should avoid the dialog.  this is Dubcc, what does anybody on here know about Politics?  the best anybody can do is troll and get feelings involved instead of discuss and present evidence.  i dont expect anything more or less from this site from that group

just the one response, sorry guys :laugh:

cube isn't even giving obama props on this like some people on this board. but the fact he's the 'leader' and not being explicitly critisized makes the message way too ambiguous. the most political potent message any black rapper could make in 2012 is to directly call out obama. the propaganda runs strong indeed. didn't he orginally campaign on stopping lobbying in washington or something?

and about being able to comment on the US...there's the small matter of a globalised financial system and the US$ as reserve currency. if that doesn't directly effect everyone on the planet i don't know that does. most people benefit from it, but thanks to bad management and corruption over several decades it's about to have it's day. definitely past the point of no return now.

if saying that both major US parties and the financial system is corrupt is still a conspiracy theory i don't know what to say. saying that shapeshifting extradimensional lizards are ruling the world is a conspiracy theory, see the difference? the former is a conspiracy fact. i could point to recent events like MF Global, the LIBOR scandal, but that probably wouldn't mean anything. there's always been systemic corruption, just that shit has run its path and the rule of law is openly being flouted to stop things from falling apart. these phoney elections where neither candidate talks to the real issues should be insulting to most americans. if you vote for obama and shit all goes south in the next couple of years, you know exactly who to blame. and it's not obama, or george bush.

i genuinely try not to comment on this stuff anymore cause it's futile on a lot of levels. but to see a rapper like cube go in the right direction and latch onto all the discontent while not really saying anything of subtance, is a bit frustrating.

Just curious, why does it have to be a black rapper calling out Obama? If Cube does not feel that way about him then that becomes more a perference or an opinion. Lupe Fiasco "spoke" out against Obama, called him a terrorist but hey thats his opinion.

I think "if" and the big word there is if, Cube is going the direction of more political on this album, he definitely is not going to give his entire thought process on one song. Over the years that is one knock I've had on Cube because I for one believe he could be an incredible orator on social commentary in America. Underrated storyteller. As for Obama/Romney to me it's pick your poison.

Never said that is wasn't. Getting the vibe from people that they forgot the other albums Cube was talking about issues when they say he never covered shit. At that time frame that was a very important issue, I lived it.

thx for showing ur tru colors Matty, all of that just for a "hot debate", i dont think so.  



u dont live in America so while we appreaciate ur concerns and ur desire for world peace just stay in your corner and admire from afar.  Obama hasnt been a bad manager, but u wouldnt know that becuz Rupert Murdock owns 80% of the news u read.  


Youre mad becuz maybe its starting to crystalize to u that "everybody's crazy except for me".

fair enough, i thought it was well established that he said a lot of very relevant stuff back then. not really aware of the full extent or accuracy of it being from out of town...

thx for showing ur tru colors Matty, all of that just for a "hot debate", i dont think so.  



u dont live in America so while we appreaciate ur concerns and ur desire for world peace just stay in your corner and admire from afar.  Obama hasnt been a bad manager, but u wouldnt know that becuz Rupert Murdock owns 80% of the news u read.  


Youre mad becuz maybe its starting to crystalize to u that "everybody's crazy except for me".  

the news is just copy pasted everywhere from whatever AP/reuters puts out.

but ok, i will retreat to my crazy world while obama keeps up the good job :pirate:

And as far as Cube with his previous albums regarding social commentary: Death Certificate was the prophecy, The Predator was the street report AFTER the prophecy was fullfilled. The topic: race relations in America as it pertains to South Central Los Angeles.

All good, I seen a couple comments from others and responded. I know Cube is capable of it because I felt it in his first 3 albums and seen it first hand (riots and race wars). Being he is probably my favorite artist of all time. it's frustrating when you get some poppy BS from him lol.

Ehh in the state this country is in, it will take 2-3 presidents to change this in a better direction

yup, but the direction has to be changed first, not just buying time. obama hasn't changed the overall direction in any meaningful way at all. there's gonna be a big fall before any chance to do so now. the thing that worries me is what history shows about governments and empires when they become overstretched and the 'big fall' happens. the solutions aren't generally very productive, people will listen to anything.

i wish people would stop acting like the fate of US politics is a US only problem. the US$ is THE valuation mechanism for the entire world. the 'arab springs' were a direct result of inflation being exported. but it'll come home to roost. funny thing is where i am (UK) is in it knee deep, london is a global hub of financial fraud and our economy will crumble when finance cracks. we have ongoing money printing too...
