Ice Cube - It Takes A Nation

By | Posted April 22, 2008
Artist: Ice Cube
Track: It Takes A Nation
Producer: Emile
Album: Raw Footage

Not to be outdone by his east coast compadre, Nas, veteran actor/rapper Ice Cube has dropped the official opening single from his forthcoming album, Raw Footage.  On It Takes A Nation, Cube calls out Corporate America, undermines the hip-hop industry’s up-and-coming talent (no names are named; that isn’t his style) and threatens to punch out the President.  Unbelievably, he does all this in just under 3 minutes and 30 seconds.  Over a beat from NYC producer Emile, which sounds very similar to Jay-Z‘s Takeover, Cube’s vengeance is unleashed for the world to hear.  The only question is: is anyone listening?
