Overall it is good, but we heard this somewhere before....

For those of you that have his "Laugh Now, Cry Later" CD, you will be feeling the déjà vu kicking in. Entire lines lifted from it.

But either way, at least he's consistent, and the album is pretty good from beginning to end.

As with a good deal of the OG rappers out there, Ice Cube is bringing God into the mix. Nothing ruins a "hardcore rap/gangsta rap" album quicker than going all religious. A song about shooting other people sits only a couple tracks away from a song about questioning people's motives for shooting other people. Huh? It's like Snoop ending his CD with a Christian Gospel song... please, it's just sad. You want to sing about God? go do a Gospel CD.

Minus one star for mentioning God on your gangsta rap CD: that's not gangsta, and that's certainly not "Westside". But the rest of the CD is good.

What did you think of this review?
