    I heard Ice Cube and Mack 10 aren't speaking to each other anymore. I wonder what happened. Bow Down is a tight album. LOL@King Of The Hill song that disses Cypress Hill. LOL@Mack 10 saying Sen Dog so wack, he ain't worth dissing hahahahahahahahahaha. LOL@Ice Cube said B-Real sound like he got baby nuts in his voice hahahahahahahahahahaha. I'm having illusions. You having illusions of me whipping on your ass bitch LOL.

    What I really dislike on that album is Ice Cube jumping on Death Row bandwagon and dissing East Coast, I presume to boost sales. Especially disgusting is him dissing Cypress Hill for having East-sounding beats and using RZA for production of one track - when Cube was basically first to use NY producers, The Bomb Squad produced bulk of AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted.

    Otherwise the album is way better than anything Ice Cube dropped after 1992.

    I liked it. Some really dope tracks on it. I don't think that Ice Cube was jumping on the Death Row bandwagon tho', I think he was mad at Common's "I used to love H.E.R. " where Common gently dissed the West for making Hip-Hop commercial

    ^^ Even worse for Cube. Common is Midwest and he was making tracks type "All the Critics in New York".

    ^^Have to agree, but i do agree with Cube, the East really had little respect for the West as a hip-hop movement
