  • As one of the MCs in the classic crew NWA, Ice Cube made a name for himself at an early age, helping to pioneer West Coast hip-hop. Ironically though, Cube's debut solo album, AMERIKKKA'S MOST WANTED, is deep-rooted in fast-paced tracks that are reminiscent of the East Coast sound that help define Public Enemy. In fact, it was the Bomb Squad who produced most of the album. Tracks like "The Nigga ya Love to Hate" and "Turn Off the Radio" are high-energy gems that show the fiery delivery that helped make Cube one of the industry's true stars. Recommended tracks include "Once Upon a Time in the Projects," "Rollin' Wit the Lench Mob," and "Endangered Species (Tales From the Darkside)," the last of which has a guest appearance from Chuck D. AMERIKKKA'S MOST WANTED is truly one of the defining albums of the rap age; an instant classic that's sure to stand the test of time.
