Ice Cube - AmeriKKKa’sMost Wanted
Ice Cube’s debut still stands as one of the most reflective, socially conscious works of the gangster rap movement. Though the lyrics are less intricate than contemporary acts, few artists have delivered a work as substantive as Amerikka’s Most Wanted. The interesting thing about this album is how topically relevant it remains. Amerikka’s Most Wanted discusses several issues with Compton specifically and America in general. Issues like gang violence are still prevalent in today’s Compton, and Kendrick Lamar’s good kid m.A.A.d. city deals heavily in gang violence.
