I noticed some west coast talk here and there so I figured I bring this up. I remember goin and pickin up this tape when I was about twelve so it musta been released around 92. That was a good year. A few other classics were dropped around that time period.


I remember hearing that intro on the first time I listened to it and was like wtf. I knew where it was from but I couldnt even understand what it had to do with the album as a whole. Growing older and going through the system led me to know what was up with that shit later. Anyway, this album has stayed in rotation since then. I put a few tracks on my iPod every know and then like- When will they shoot , Wicked, Now I gotta wet'cha , Dirty Mack.



The production is pretty damn good. It stands the test of time and Cube stays consistantly in the pocket. Besides the Gangsta Fairytale pt. 2 , I would say this album is a 4.5/ 5


What up, anybody remember listenin to this shit or does anybody still listen to it?

Cant belive aint nobody got shit to say about this album. I bet I know why too. Cube said alot of shit on this album that broke down the real on many levels and it does offend a certain audience. Thus , no replies up in this thread.

If anything somebody could say something about " it was a good day". Fuck, That was a classic hip hop track. Vital to the game. Ya'll some haters if you cant comment on this album.

Fuck what Cube doin now with music. I'm talkin about tha G that birthed many G's.


One.

^^^LOL, first cube ain't a real G, like you wanna call it...


second, you are right, it's a great album, i'd rate it 3.5/5 !!!

half is bangers, other half is average (but not bad)


and like cypress hill said, those tracks produced by muggs are amongst the illest from the album...

peace!

This album is a 5/5. Fuck it, even gangstas fairytale pt.2 was a excellent showcase of verbal skills. The reason why many wont admit that this is a classic could only be because they are offended by what the subject matter is conveying.

I wouldn't say The Predator is a classic. It's mediocore. Only songs i liked are Wicked, The Predator, It Was A Good Day, We Had To Tear This Muthafucka Up, Don't Trust No, Gangsta's Fairytale part 2, Who Got The Camera. Check Yo Self remix with Das EFX is better than the album version. I got Ice Cube's videos volume 1 on dvd. I was watching the Wicked video about a month ago and i was tripping because Ice Cube had the rock group Red Hot Chili Peppers in the video. What the fuck is he doing hanging with them? LOL. Who were they running from in the video? LOL.

[Ice Cube]
God damn, another fuckin payback with a twist
Them motherfuckers shot but the punks missed
Ice Cube is out-gunned, what is the outcome?
Will they do me like Malcolm?
Cause I bust styles, new styles, standin - strong!
While, others +Run+ a +Hundred Miles+
But I never run, never will
Deal with the devil with my motherfuckin steel - BOOM!
Media try to do me
But I was a Boy-N-the-Hood before the movie, yeah
Call me nigga, bigger than a spook
But you the one that voted for Duke, motherfucker
White man, is somethin I tried to study
But I got my hands bloody, yeah
They said I could sing like a Jaybird
But nigga, don't say the J-word
I thought they was buggin
cause to us Uncle Sam, is Hitler without an oven
Burnin our black skin
Buy my neighborhood - then push the crack in
Doin us wrong from the first day
And don't understand why a nigga got an AK
Callin me an African-American
like everything is fair again, shit
Devil, you got to get the shit right I'm black
Blacker than a trillion midnights
+Don't Believe the Hype+ was said in '88
by the great Chuck D, now they're tryin to fuck me
".. with +No Vaseline+
Just a match and a little bit of gasoline.." - HUH!
It's a great day for genocide (What's that?)
That's the day all the niggaz died
They killed JFK in '63
So what the fuck you think they'll do to me?
But I'm the O.G. and I bust back (boom boom)
Bust back (Boom boom!) peel a cap (BOOM BOOM!)
Gimme room in the fire of the sun
Here the mack come, here the black come, watch Jack run!
Motherfuckers can't gank me
Fuck a devil, fuck a rebel, and a yankee
Overrun and put the Presidency
After needin that, I'm down wit O.P.P., yeah
I met Farrakhan and had dinner
And you ask if I'm a five-percenter, well...
No, but I go where the brothers go
Down with Compton Mosque, Number 54
Made a little dough, still got a sister on my elbow
Did Ice Cube sell out? You say, "Hell no!"
A black woman is my manager, not in the kitchen
So could you please stop bitchin?

"Stalkin.. walkin in my big black boots" [Brother J]
[Cube] Yeah, yeah..
"But when will they shoot?"
"Stalkin.. walkin in my big black boots" [Brother J]
[Cube] Yeah, yeah..
"But when will they shoot?"
.. [automatic gunfire]


[Ice Cube]
You missed, and didn't hit Da Lench Mob either
"Guerillas in the Mist.." without Jungle Fever

But I got the fever for the flava of a cracker
Not a Pringle, bust the single, here's my new jingle
"Stalkin.. walkin in my big black boots"
The KKK has got three-piece suits
Using niggaz like turkey shoots
My motto is +Treat 'Em Like a Prostitute+
Now if I say no violence, devil, you won't respect mine fuck the dumb shit - and get my Tec-9
And if they approach us
A-ight, a-ight - I bury those cockroaches
And if you can't deal with my +Kill at Will+
Here's a new gift to get - try my +Death Certificate+
+Amerikkka's Most+, Amerikkka's burnt - it's like toast
Like Jordan, I'm goin coast to coast
Dribblin the funk here comes the nigga
with the motherfuckin monster dunk, get off me punk!
"Jordan.. watch Jordan,
aiyyo yo watch Jordan .. YES!"
"You better eat your Wheaties" [M.J.]

"Stalkin.. walkin in my big black boots" [Brother J]
[Cube] Yeah, yeah..
"But when will they shoot?"
"Stalkin.. walkin in my big black boots" [Brother J]
[Cube] Yeah, yeah..
"But when will they shoot?"

[Ice Cube]
Darryl Gates got the studio surrounded
Cause he don't like the niggaz that I'm down with
Motherfucker wanna do us
Cause I like Nat, Huey, Malcolm, and Louis
Most got done by a black man's bullet
Give a trigger to a nigga and watch him pull it
Negro assass-in
I'ma dig a ditch, bitch, and throw yo' ass in
When they shoot, no, it won't be a cracker
They use somebody much blacker
What I do? I called up the Geto Boy(s) crew
Cause +My Mind's Playing Tricks On Me+ too
Never died, surround my crib
and F.O.I. makin sure nobody creep when I sleep
Keep a 9 millimeter in my Jeep - PEEP!
When I roll, I gots to roll deep
Ain't goin out cheap
Met the MADD Circle on Cypress Hill cause it's so steep
They'll never get me, they'll never hit me
Motherfuck that shit J-Dee
Now I'm relaxed
Grab the St. Ide's brew so I can max
Sittin by the window cause it's so fuckin hot
and then I heard a shot - boom.




:spin: When the Fuck is Ice Cube Gonna Remember that shit and stand back up?:spin:
