I'm not a big fan of rap music in general. But I like this. I don't think the rest of the album is like this though. I haven't heard it myself but my brother tells me that the album is quite different to this.

It's funky for sure but to me it's (not just) Knee Deep all over again. I don't know how many times they can try to recreate this beat in G- Funk. Meanwhile the real Funkadelic is going in new directions.
But I guess I can't really blame them for continuing to mine the P-Funk groove.

Cube did it better in '94 with "Bop Gun", and that was eleven minutes long.

Keep your headphones on.

He gave props to The Dr and rolled it out with The Roots on Kimmel last night.

I like "Arrest The President", the rest of the album is kinda meh though, including this track. Ice Cube does not translate well over trap beats, IMHO.

if it was just a dream, call me a dreamer 2

Hmm. It'll do well for OG Ice Cube fans not into mumble rap. Definitely a "Knee Deep" redux, but also check out George Clinton's "Man's Best Friend", cause the melody leans heavily towards that song as well.

Yes I remember first time I heard Man’s Best Friend and thinking ok this is a clone of Knee Deep. Give Junie Morrison his due too afterall he is the origin of the knee deep music.
