Yup. I'm not really sure what people are complaining about. This record is fire and gets better with more spins. Worst song is probably Bad Dope but it's at least a cool concept track that fits in nicely between Don't Bring Me No Bag and On Them Pills.  There are so many good songs and it's hard to pick a favorite. Can U Dig It? is good shit, Fire Water hits hard and so does Still In The Kitchen and Chase Down The Bully. I can pop this bitch in and just let it play until the end 8) 8) 8)

people are complaining about who is in charge of mastering the album ruined many good songs. they are already good songs but with a better mastering they would sound more dope.

Well Cube said Everythang's Corrupt, I guess that includes the mix/mastering lol ;D. No but for reals, I got the cd, I've been bumping that shit hard as fuck and it sounds pretty good to me, haven't checked it on headphones or studio monitors tho'.

The album is pretty dope, there's a couple tracks I don't like, mainly cuz of the south/trap beats, other than that it's solid. I think EC it's better and more cosistent than IATW, although IATW did have it's bangers. Cube just needs to stop using dem trap beats, aint no one checking for Cube for trap music. He needs to go straight West Coast wit it, front to back, and make a classic already; lyrically he's still got it and always has something to say. That New Funkadelic almost brought a tear to my eye LOL, just cool to hear him on some ol' Bop Gun shit again, that's my shit!!!

Not sure if it's been talked about already but were's WC at? I'm surprised he didn't get down on EC. Any word on a new project from Dub?

I get so sick of people complaining that it's not another AMW or Death Certificate like that in DX review. If that's your standard for new music, your life is going to be very disappointing.

Album is nice, judge it on its own merits.

Also, how are you going to write this line--Cube has proven his staying power is stronger than Gorilla Glue--and talk about Cube having corny bars?

This. Couldn't agree more.

Cube stated back in 1992 (when The Predator came out) that he does all of his albums differently. HipHopDx and XXL are being unreasonable. What do these critics want (besides payola)?!? Granted, Cube has done individual songs that were wack ("Crowded"), but entire albums that were wack from beginning to end? None to speak of, in my opinion. Some Cube albums are stronger than others, but all of them are decent, if not classic from start to finish (I Am The West is probably his weakest album overall, but even that one had some great songs among the suckjobs, for example).

As far as the new one....I pretty much like all of it now. The production on a few tunes took some getting used to ("Fire Water" and "Bad Dope"), but it's all good now for me after a few listens. Flow-wise, I thought Cube was on-point on every track except maybe "Non-Believers." The song is still entertaining, but some of Cube's bars on the verses sounded a little "choppier" than they should have, given the beat. The lines on that one could have been lengthened a bit. Still, the content of the verses on that song (and all of the others) was fine.

To me, this is the first album Cube's done in ages where I honestly cannot name a single song that could be termed 100% wack w/ nothing to redeem it. Sure, people's opinions will vary re: songs they like/dislike depending on production or subject matter, and that's cool. But here's what I mean: Cube's last five CDs (War & Peace Vols. 1 and 2, LNCL, RF, and IATW) all had some classic joints, and they also had some decent-to-average songs, but each of them also had at least one-to-three suckjob songs that I would hear and think, "Come ON, Cube! You can do better than THAT!" Examples: "Limos, Demos & Bimbos," "If I Was Fucking You," "Can U Bounce?", "I Got My Locs On," "She Couldn't Make It On Her Own," "It Is What It Is," and "All Day, Everyday," to name a few that I still can't get into even today. But on EC, while I like some songs more than others, I can't name a single EC song where I found myself thinking "that song's beneath Cube's talent" the way I did for certain songs on the last five CDs he put out before this new one. For instance, "One For The Money" might not be my personal favorite, but it's decent, and I could see where someone else could possibly consider it one of their favorites, b/c the beat pounds and Cube sounds like he's having fun. So while I might not love "One For The Money," I do at least like it. Or, take "Fire Water." That song's production might not be to everyone's taste (it sounded weird to me the first time I heard it), but the lyrics and Cube's flow are fun and entertaining (and I kind of got the impression that "Fire Water" was meant to be more of a "just kickin' lyrics for fun" type of song to provide some variety after the political and drug-related songs).   

Right now, my favorites are "Arrest the President," "Chase Down The Bully," the title track, "Good Cop, Bad Cop," "On Them Pills," "Can You Dig It," "That New Funkadelic," and "Still In The Kitchen." But every song has at least something to recommend it, in my opinion. I'd give it a 4 out of 5 right now. But that's just my opinion....PEACE!

The Hip Hop DX review talked about Cube having corny bars and then the reviewer wrote that line as part of their review.

I know....Unbelievable...And then XXL claims that he "lacks finesse..." SMH...As far as I'm concerned, I think that the hate that most Cube projects have received from mainstream critics from 1998 (when War came out) to today comes down to two simple things:

(1). Ageism. Music critics in most genres (except maybe Jazz and Blues) don't show a lot of respect to older performers. I think what happens is that music writers are told by their bosses to push the newer, younger artists and claim that their newest records are the shit (whether they are or not), while older artists get short shrift, even if their new stuff is dope.

(2). I think that a lot of critics (esp. on the East Coast) are still pissed at Cube b/c of the "Bow Down" CD (Westside Connection). During that period, Cube, Mack, and Dub (on interviews) basically told the truth about what was going on w/ media people in N.Y.C., about how critics there act like East Coast rappers walk around w/ halos over their heads and can't do any wrong, while anyone not from the east coast is considered "wack" or "not 'real' hip-hop." I have back issues of mags from the early-to-late 1990s of The Source, Vibe, XXl, and other publications, and in almost every review section, they would praise the hell out of the new NYC rap releases for that time, while new stuff from the West and the South would only get, say, three or three-and-a-half mics out of five. So in my opinion, Cube, Mack, and Dub knew what they were talking about. But the N.Y. critics didn't like getting called out like that.

Don't get me wrong--the War and Peace discs (for example) were not Cube's greatest CDs--both of them had some songs that, for Cube, were marginal (to put it nicely), as did I Am The West, which is probably Cube's weakest overall CD (although it still had some dope tracks). But for critics to call him "corny" and act like he's fallen off completely is out of line. The plain fact, to me, even if critics won't admit it, is that Cube pissed them off w/ the "Bow Down" CD (and the whole Westside Connection project) and they're now out to "get" him. Period (which might be inevitable when you have a song that says, "Fuck all the critics in the N.Y.C.," but hey. If you can't take the heat....LOL)! Giving Cube bad reviews makes these critics feel big (I still remember when Peace came out, XXL tried to claim that it was wack by comparing the lyrics of the first verse of Death Certificate's "My Summer Vacation" w/ the third verse lyrics of Peace's "You Ain't Gotta Lie To Kick It," and then saying some smart-ass shit like, "It's not the same, is it?" I'm thinking to myself: "Hey Einstein...FYI, 'My Summer Vacation' was intended as a street/story song, and "You Ain't Gotta Lie" was intended as a comedic party track. Unfair comparison. Of course they're going to be different!" But like I said, I think the person who wrote the review just wanted to be a dick).

Bottom line: In my opinion, Everythang's Corrupt is Cube's best overall CD out of all his "new millenium" CDs, and it shouldn't be slept on!

Well
As much as I carried on like a delusional nincompoop over Everythang's Corrupt I haven't actually listened to it.
I've heard the title track, New Funkadelic, Arrest The President and the spoken word version of Fire Water but it really didn't get much play on social media and I couldn't be bothered listening for a whole hour despite my deranged obsession with the album for the last 6 years. I liked the spoken word in terms of it being spoken word but hearing Cube refer to himself as a cannibal really didn't do it for me.

Finally gave this another thorough listen, great album but production could've been a little better. Definitely going back to listen to tracks like 'Ain't Got No Haters' & 'That New Funkadelic".

He only has himself to blame for that. It's almost like the project was cursed from the jump. He shouldn't of even dropped the name of the project if he wasn't going to release it soon after.
