Throwback: Ice Cube-It Was A Good Day




[youtube id=”h4UqMyldS7Q”] Ice Cube’s “It Was A Good Day” is the most popular song in his solo rap career. The former N.W.A. member is famous for writing memorable gangsta rap tales but “It Was A Good Day” was the opposite kind of story. In one day, Ice Cube was able to hang out with a friend, drive peacefully, hook up with his girlfriend, get high and see a blimp that read ‘Ice Cube Is A Pimp.’ The lyrics to Ice Cube’s perfect day were set to The Isley Brothers’ “Footsteps In The Dark” and “Sexy Mama” by The Moments. The popularity of the song made those two samples famous and recycled again and again. Ernie Isley’s guitar created an instant feeling of floating above the stress of everyday concerns and having a moment to enjoy life.

The Predator was Ice Cube’s third album and it would be his most sold reaching double platinum status. Fans and critics took note of Ice Cube’s angry lyrics about the L.A. riots and his response to the criticism he received for being allegedly anti-Semitic on Death Certificate. The Predator is considered to be one of Ice Cube’s most important and influential of his nine albums. Fans are still waiting for the release of his 10th project, Everythang’s Corrupt. Ice Cube recently revealed on Twitter that he is currently finishing the script for the fourth Friday movie. His Big3 basketball league games will be live-streamed on Facebook starting June 22nd.
