“These 32 teeth, will give yo’ ass grief/
Bite you like a Fatburger, if you got beef”
–Ice Cube, “It Takes A Nation”

Cube’s delivery is pretty mediocre on his new album, but at least most of the content is on point.  I’m willing to look the other way for most of the rhymes that challenge the status quo, but there are certain couplets, like above, that I can’t cosign.

Killer Mike ft. Ice Cube – Pressure (video)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Music Videos on July 3rd, 2008 by Hyphen

Whooooooo, speak on it Mike.  The only thing I really have an issue with is the idea of “eff saving the planet.”  I understand the point he’s trying to make, but without a planet, everything else becomes moot.  Regardless, greatness in its rawest form.
