    The first Ice Cube track i heard was How to survive in south central, boys in the hood soundtrack way back in 1990. I remember his flow was out of this world, i then went and got straight out of compton NWA 1st album & immediately became a fan. Ice Cube's simply the Greatest lyricist i have ever listened to, he talks about so many issues ranging from politics, social commentary, religion, flossing, gang related, women & sex. He speaks with so much power & authority & his flow is legendary rivaled only by Biggie. Cube has been in the game for so long & has stood the test of time. He's a poet as tracks like Ghetto vet, Until We Rich, Nigga Trap, Stand tall show us masterful abstract lyrics. He's simply the best period, only a handful of rappers come close i.e. tupac, biggie, nas & rakim.

    Ice Cube is the greatest rapper of all-time hands down!! NO ONE in the history of hip-hop has ever said ANYTHING more meaningful & powerful than him. It's raw & uncut lyrics. I think his biggest gift is, he has the ability to bring you a message & ANYONE from 5 to 95 can understand him whether you agree with him or not. A lot of rappers talk in circles & use a lot of subliminal talk in their lyrics. If you ain't gonna come out & just say it, don't say it at all! CUBE LAYS IT OUT THERE FOR YOU & IT'S REAL TALK. If you listen to him, YOU WILL LEARN BECAUSE HE AIN'T LYING! First song I heard from Cube, My Posse when he was with a group called CIA! That shit was hot! When he got with NWA, IT WAS OVER & THINGS HAVE NEVER BEEN THE SAME! I think he is the greatest rapper due to his influence on hip-hop. The great rappers before him are in another class & I mean no disrespect to them. I say RUN-DMC, ICE-T, & CUBE! Why? Run-DMC brought this game to the masses & broke down the door for hip-hop. Ice-T & Cube really took it to another level & really brought you the reality of life VERY VIVIDLY. WHO HASN'T & STILL ISN'T COPYING THEIR STYLE IS THE QUESTION? I give the edge to CUBE for his longevity in the game.

    the first time i heard from Cube was 1989/90. After the german wall failed i got the choice between heavymetal and a new kind of music straight from the states, called rap. This was the first time.... in combination with NWA.
    And my speakers still bumpin the old AmeriKKKa's most wanted tracks etc.

    When I first heard Cube, I wasn't all that big on rap music. More so R&B and Hip-Hop. The first Cube song that I heard and loved was Why We Thugs? After that I had to go out and get Laugh Now, Cry Later. I know that's mad late, but Cube got me lovin his music after hearing Why We Thugs? and now I'm a huge fan. Cube is the godfather of rap for sho'.
    I've been checkin back here everyday to see when the next Boston tour was comin, but when it does, gettin tickets ASAP!
    Keep your music for real and God bless, Cube
