I Am the West by Ice Cube
Released: Sep 2010
Label: Caroline Records
With his reputation as a pioneering rap artist and black filmmaker secure, Ice Cube is playing with house money. So he's not afraid to note that he's "spiritual, n*gga, like Jesus Christ is" on "Your Money or Your Life," or diss the music industry for holding major awards shows in L.A. while ignoring its long-suffering rap scene on "I Rep That West." Buoyed by Ice Cube's prickly opinions, I Am the West hits with a patrician's authority, even though the tracks careen from the perceptive social analysis of "Hood Robbin'" to monotonous party tracks like "Drink the Kool-Aid" and "Urbanian."
