Over thumping drums, Cube reminds everyone of his West Coast background. “The West Coast b—h, yeah that’s all me/ With Too Short and the D.R.E./ We made it too hard, check our family tree,” he raps.
He then gives an insightful history lesson behind his influence in rap: “Taught 2Pac how to keep it gangsta/ Taught Biggie Smalls how to release his anger/ Who came before me? Melly Mel, Ice-T/ King T, KRS, and the homie Chuck D.”
This month looks to be a busy one for Cube. Not only will he be releasing his 25th anniversary album of Death Certificate, he’ll also be launching the inaugural season of his BIG3 basketball league headlined by NBA Hall of Famer Allen Iverson.
