Ice Cube: Jackin' For Beats



Here are a few tracks by various artists dissing Ice Cube for various reasons....... The overall opinion of him through these tracks is, he's a studio gangsta that bites stories and hooks from anyone.


MP3:Cypress Hill - Ice Cube Killa

This is their second Cube diss track following "No Rest For The Wicked" off of the "III Temples Of Boom" album. Ice Cube replied with "King Of The Hill" on Westside Connections "Bow Down" and then Cypress released this one however only came out as a 12" because they all made up on the set of a Shaq video.

MP3: Kam - Whoop Whoop

After Kam left Cube's "Street Knowledge" label he cut sick on Cube on DJ Pooh's "Bad News Travels Fast". After this was released Ice Cube tried to sucker punch one of Kam's homies but ended up getting his W.S.C. chain snatched. I think that B-Real ended up with it after putting in the highest bid.

MP3: Gonzoe - Fairytale Gangsta

Another of "Street Knowledge's" ex-members Gonzoe from the group "Kausion" released this crazy track thats a play on Cubes famous "Gangsta Fairytales" tracks.

MP3: King Sun - Suck No Dick

Former friend of Cube, New York's King Sun let him listen to some of his new material before Cube dropped the "Predator" album and the last thing King Sun expected was that Cube would gank the "Wicked" hook from him and release it as the new single from his next album. King Sun went looking for O'shea Jack-son and found him on stage.

MP3: Common - Bitch In Yoo

After Common released a track with a slight west coast diss in it Westside Connection released "Westside Slaughter House" track with video dissing Common and followed it up with interviews dissing him some more. Common came back with "Bitch In Yoo" and even performed it in Cubes hometown. They made up (and hugged) in a East Coast - West Coast stop the violence type meeting held by Minister Farrakhan.

There is also a track by "Shorty" of "Da Lench Mob" that I do not have, However hear is an interview fom issue #49 of "Bomb" magazine by Craig Smith giving his opinion of Ice Cube.

Although these are all good Ice Cube diss tracks I can't end this without mentioning that Ice Cube has made some pretty crazy diss tracks himself. ie. "No Vaseline" and "King Of The Hill".
