Back in the days of Jheri Curls and Walkmans, Ice Cube was the man. Now, in an age of cornrows and iPods, the slightly older rapper is… well, still the man. Set to release his highly anticipated 9th solo album this summer, titled Raw Footage, Ice Cube is out to show the haters that he hasn’t lost a step. On Do Your Thang, the album’s official radio single, he sounds perfectly at home against PalumboBeats’s production, a typical West Coast, throw-up-your-gang-signs beat. While the former Gangsta Rap pioneer doesn’t pack quite the same edge that he flaunted in the early to mid-90’s, it’s still clear why his prowess on the mic always surpassed his skills on the screen: the old man knows he was born to spit.
