Easily the most influential artist of my life.. Ice Cube aka the Dirty Mack, aka the Predator, aka the Don Mega, aka (you name it, he's got a ton). I remember being "a bad muthafucka playing space invaders" in elementary school when my older brothers started playing NWA (cassette) on the boom box!! It was so different, powerful, and interesting. I was hooked!! Me and the homeboys used to play or pick NWA rappers like they were basketball players. Of course, I was Cube, they could have Eazy, Dre, and Ren.. haha!! Cube's voice was and still is dynamic, if you were sleeping on any of his lyrics or content, his voice and delivery will grab you and pull you into every song!! Why he is the best ever?? To me you judge an artist by his "staying power".. Well, he's definitely not a one hit wonder being in the game over 20 years. "Quality of music".. when you put a record on and don't have to "skip" a song to find the next good one. "Impact on his genre of music",, NWA, Rap Hall of Famer, "started this gangsta shit", Westside Connection.. enough said!! Can you "pimp the system" and make it work for you?? aside from his music?? acting, movie production, T.V., documentaries, concerts, etc!! He layed the foundation for these new cats in the game.. look at how many artists and actors/actresses he helped put on the map (Eva Mendez, Mike Epps, Kat Williams, Jaime Foxx, Chris Tucker, Bernie Mac, Mack 10, WC, Short Khop, Comrads, AllfrumthaI, to name a few). I was always fascinated about the things Cube rapped about, especially when I was young and really didn't care for politics.. I can honeslty say, I learned a lot from his music. From issues with the Government, gang struggles, problems families that lived in the inner cities faced, police brutality, etc. shit he "called the riots before the riots." My junior year in high school, I did my Political Science project on "I wanna kill Sam" haha! that's gangsta!! I've been lucky enough to see Cube live here locally in SoCal at least 10 times, always a great show. I appreciate the effort and energy, the dialogue with the crowd, and showmanship he puts into each performance.. His last show he said some shit like he will never stop performing for his fans, he will be 75 years old playing 3 nights a week at the Golden Nugget in Vegas!! haha!! If anything Cube, thanks for being consistent for the last 25 years of my life. I'm always excited to see what you come up with next. PEACE, AUDI 5000 G!

"it's the Don, go let'em know, unwetable, aaaahh!! big fish incredible!!"
