Let's kick it off with for its time was one the most creative trks I heard. Only Cube can start with the beginning and ending of the life cycle of a troubled black male. Please share any thoughts or comments.

Ice Cube "The Product"

I love this track... Cube came raw with it...

What I like most is his creative word play and story telling techniques of the

Struggle... unlike other artist that tend to display miseries through repetitive rants...

of "Fuck the system" type of phrases...


The beat is off the chain too... the way he incorporates the use of dialogues between

verses is great...

Exactly. The song defines the mood of that period of time just right. With the crack epidemic in full swing and gangster shit abundant. The black male had an big ass target on his back. Calling us the "product" adds to deepness of this song. Faceless victims.

Very dope track indeed. As you said, Cube always knows how to articulate the struggles of the black male, obviously because he went through some or most of those struggles himself before the NWA days.
