If you accuse Ice Cube of going Hollywood, the West Coast veteran will take it as a compliment. As he explains on The Big Show, a freshly-minted record off his 10th full-length, the connections he’s made through his extra-musical ventures haven’t supplanted his homies from back in the day; they’ve simply added to his vast global network of movers-and-shakers. Over Mortito and Willer‘s percolating synth loop, the West Coast vet beats Jayceon Taylor at his own game, delivering three verses of nothing but name-dropping. And, in case you feel the need to look up any of the more obscure figures he mentions, director Travis Satten provides a lyric video to aid your Googling. Featuring this joint along with the reader-approved title track, Everythang’s Corrupt is slated to drop via Lench Mob Records in the next 12 months.
