Ice Cube shows 'Raw Footage'


Say what you will about Ice Cube, when it come to music he knows exactly how to get your attention. Sure, in the movies he portrays the lovable yet funny man but when the social realms of society he knows how to get the people and political vibes going with each rap song. That is evident in his latest release Raw Footage (Lench Mob Records).

While it's politically driven how fitting it is as the rapper and other from the rap group N.W.A. remember and recognized the album "Straight Outta Compton" the album that change American music and let other rappers like them express themselves like never before. (That album is a Godsend). And like that album and Raw Footage Ice Cube will continue to say what's on his mind.
