I've been reading blogs for days now. Of all the sites I am a part of this will be my favorite. So glad Cube is finally bein paid bac... he's been working really hard for a long time. I read so much good spit, I didn't wanna start a blog that wouldn't be ...good enough?.... i know we got gangstas of all kinds here guys- so : "GANGSTA,
did Cube really start it, or did he just become the definition?"
I think tha latter... even tho 'they' tried to make him a killer...he helped me Live. Saved my life actually. Cube wasnt violent (and still ain't) - he was/is militant. So was/am I. I remember when that gangsta rap crap first got started... i was like aint no such thing as gangsta rap. he just rappin! the gangsta was all about his surroundings, at that time the West Coast seemed a threat to the extent of the "backers". 'they' had to TRY and get rid of that influence. People hate what they cant control. And America has always been Money. Little did 'they' know, they were starting his legacy for him. Yes, it started with NWA- cant 4get thefirst time i heard -"cruizin down the street in my 64..." but when the "backers" wedged, Ice Cube refused to let even his group define him. I know it must have been scary, but we would never know it. Bein by urself- u gotta be, or get gangsta...
