Hood Mentality - Raw Footage
Been listenin to this album again lately, specially this song, and I hope Cube's next album is geared toward more of this sort of philosophical style of gangsta rap. I don't think you can pigeon hole gangsta rap the way the media does. Even though the themes can sometimes be perceived as negative there's too much focus on the controversy of it and not enough recognition of the actual messages that are being conveyed.
Cube may not be ghetto, like he said, he's urbanian, but the same old shit still goin on, the world over, and we need more people who've risen above "the game" to give a voice ( which can sometimes inspire a choice ) to the everyday struggle.
