Everythang’s Corrupt continues Ice Cube’s legacy as one of the most politically outspoken rappers of all time, proving that the power of his voice and vision is stronger than ever. Released last month, lead single “Arrest the President” was hailed as a “scathing, politically-charged affair” by HipHopDX. Elsewhere on the album, Ice Cubes confronts everything from systemic racism in police culture to the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville to Big Pharma’s role in the opioid epidemic, and gives a nod to such figures as Colin Kaepernick and the Black Lives Matter movement.
In a recent interview on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, Ice Cube shed light on the message behind Everythang’s Corrupt. “It’s not just corruption of the system,” Ice Cube told Lowe. “A lot of people…we are corrupting our bodies. We corrupting our neighborhoods. We corrupting our minds. There’s a lot of corruption going on that we got to figure out what kind of world we want to live in.”
Made with producers like T-Mix (Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, 8Ball and MJG), Everythang’s Corrupt splices its hard-hitting West Coast hip-hop with elements of soul and classic funk. On the previously released single “That New Funkadelic,” for instance, Ice Cube delivers a party anthem praised by HotNewHipHop as “evocative of seminal figures Prince and George Clinton; synth-tinged basslines and g-funk whistles provide a lush and lively backdrop for Cube’s hedonistic bars.”

About Ice Cube:
Widely regarded as one of the most important figures in rap history, Ice Cube began his career two decades ago with N.W.A — aka the World’s Most Dangerous Group. After penning some of the most memorable lyrics on N.W.A’s groundbreaking tracks “Straight Outta Compton” and “Fuck Tha Police,” Ice Cube broke away at the height of the group’s success. As he moved on to launch his solo career, his debut studio album AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted (Priority, 1990) sold more than a million copies. A concept album about the fall and rise of the black man, Ice Cube’s solo sophomore effort Death Certificate (Priority, 1991) debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, eventually selling over two million copies. His impressive musical career also includes the multi-platinum success of his two-part album War & Peace, as well as the hit albums Lethal Injection, Bootlegs & B-Sides, The Predator, the gold-certified and independently released Laugh Now, Cry Later, Raw Footage, and I Am The West (a 2010 release that debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200 and proved to be one of the most successful independent releases in hip-hop that year).
In 2015, Cube’s film production company Cube Vision released the Oscar-nominated and critically acclaimed N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton via Universal Pictures. The film broke box-office records, emerging as the #1 film release for three consecutive weeks and grossing over $201 million worldwide.
Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as part of N.W.A in 2016, Ice Cube was honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017. To date, he’s sold over 10 million solo albums.
