Next Tuesday, Ice Cube will release Raw Footage, the newest addition to his impressive and ever-growing catalog. Now, eighteen years since the release of his solo debut, AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted, Cube might be older, but his rhymes are still tightly woven with thought-provoking sentiment and lyrical ingenuity. This is evidenced by the West Coast native’s newest single, Why Me?, which features accompaniment from singer Musiq Soulchild. Over a mellow, head-nodding beat from Lench Mob in-house producers Teak and Dee (of Hallway Productionz), Cube puts random and unprovoked violence on blast in a dedication to “all the n*ggaz who is dead and don’t know why.” A question is asked, but does anyone have the answer?
