Album Reviews for I am the West
I have been checking the net for reviews of Cube's new CD and there have been alot of negative reviews. I listen to my copy again and I think they might have gotten the wrong CD. All the negative review are base on two issues. One the new CD doesn't compare to the classics (AmericKKK's Most, DC, Preator, Lethal Injection) and I will agree to that however Cube is not the same person, or artist he was back then. His music should be judged on where it is now and if it is good or not NOW not based on his past works.
The second thing is keep reading is that he is not "gangsta" anymore because he did Are we there yet? I think this is the dumest reason to down grade this CD. One doesn't even relate to the other. The Gov. of California was the Terminator. Cube was playing a character in a movie so leave that out of your thinking.
The one positive I can take from all of the negative is that most of these people hold Cube in high regard, and have high expectation for his music as I do and everyone on this site does. With anything people will like it or hate it but I think if you are going to give a review then take it at face value. My personal review of the album is 3.5 out of 5. I think the filler on this CD would have been tracks by Dre if he didn't flake on Cube. And as for the "good doctor" he can make time for dipset but not Cube??? Just saying.
