Ice Cube - Lethal Injection

Ice Cube – Lethal Injection

1. Intro
2. Really doe…Head noddin’ production.  Hella dope flow and nice hook.  4.5/5
3. Ghetto bird…A great story about being chased the police.  Dope production accompanies the tight flow and lyrics.  4/5
4. You know how we do it…Nice laidback beat matched with that high-pitched squealing that sets the song off.  Cube does an amazing job on the mic.  5/5
5. Cave bitch…Funny intro.  Song about white women.  It’s a decent track, but I’m not really feelin’ it.  3.5/5
6. Bop gun (One nation)…Different kind of song for Cube.  Lyrics are on point and George Clinton’s presence on the track is perfect.  The song is just way too long.  3.5/5
7. What can I do?…The lyrics are dope ass hell, but this beat really doesn’t do them justice.  3.5/5
8. Lil ass gee…Good lyrical content about young gangsters.  Production lacks.  3/5
9. Make it ruff, make it smooth…K-Dee and Ice Cube trade lyrics over an average beat about their different lifestyles.  3/5
10.   Down for whatever…The beat is way too slow.  Cube sounds alright, but the rhyme is too slow because of the beat.  It’s kind of catchy though.  3.5/5
11.   Enemy…Harder production is present here.  Cube’s lyrics are more intense than many previous tracks.  I’m still not diggin’ the beat.  3/5
12.   When I get to Heaven…Laidback beat.  Cube sounds good on the track with lyrics that match well to the production.  3.5/5

OVERALL…6.5/10

If only the album could maintain the same intensity as the first three tracks.  The production lacks heavily on tracks 7-12 for Ice Cube’s flow.  He even seems to compromise his flow to match the lacks-a-daisy production, therefore his intense delivery is not heard.  That’s probably why “Bootlegs & B-sides” contained so many remixes from this album.
