Conclusion

Pro-social Content

On "It Was a Good Day," Cube is thankful for a day without killing. He criticizes the indignities of prison ("First Day of School") and de facto segregation ("Integration").

Objectionable Content

Ice Cube threatens violence (including shootings, bombings and forced anal and oral sex) against targets including Los Angeles police chief Willie Williams ("Wicked"), former chief Daryl Gates ("We Had to Tear This Mothaf-a Up"), the jury that found L.A. police officers not guilty in the Rodney King beating ("Now I Gotta Wet 'Cha"), the officers themselves ("We Had to Tear This Motha-f-a Up"), the editor of Billboard magazine ("The Predator") and even the anti-gang Guardian Angels ("Dirty Mack").

Cube, formally of the rap group N.W.A., approves of looting ("We Had to Tear This Mothaf-a Up"), kidnapping prostitutes ("Say Hi to the Bad Guy"), and has no problem with sexual promiscuity that he describes in graphic terms ("Dirty Mack," "It Was a Good Day").

Summary Advisory

While it may be important to understand the anger of Ice Cube and his peers, this violent, near-paranoid attitude should be soundly rejected. A vile number-1 debut disc that should be put on ice . . . permanently!
