Know Your Hip Hop Vol.1

Ok, if you thought Ice Cube(O'Shea Jackson) just did family movies, you're sadly mistaken. Ice Cube left N.W.A. when their popularity was at it's peak. Having written half of N.W.A.'s proverbial middle finger to the world, Straight Outta Compton, Cube left because of royality disputes. On May 16, 1990 he dropped his CLASSIC debut album Amerikkka's Most Wanted. Cube shocked everyone when he enlisted The Bomb Squad(Public Enemy's production team) to produce his album. The album went on to become a commercial success and went platinum two months later. Having been released over 18 years ago, this album stands the test of time as being of the one of the best hip hop albums of all time and most influential.
If you don't know, now you know.
