Ice Cube Returns To His G-Funk Roots on New Album

Ice Cube Returns To His G-Funk Roots on New Album

Ice Cube wasn't only a pioneer of the gangsta hip-hop sound, but prior to 1992, when Ice Cube’s N.W.A. partner Dr. Dre brought G-Funk to the mainstream with The Chronic, Cube and his team produced Del The Funky Homosapien’s 1991 debut, I Wish My Brother George Was Here. 

The title was in reference to Uncle George Clinton in a Funk-Rap workshop for the Hieroglyphics MC. One year after Del’s LP, Cube made an appearance in Dr. Dre’s “Let Me Ride” video, a homage to the 1970s spaceship-rocking sounds of Clinton and his Funketeers.

Cube adapted those G-Funk/P-Funk sounds on his 1994’s “Bop Gun (One Nation)” and started developing a relationship with George Clinton who appeared on the song. 

                               

Expect to hear more of that flavor on Ice Cube's new release Everything’s Corrupt. Yes, between movies and running The Big3 League, Cube still finds time to make joints. 

Cube switches gears from the recent “Arrest The President” single. This time, Cube is hitting us with “That New Funkadelic," a single  heavily influenced by the Atomic Dog” creator.
