Out of all the controversial songs Ice Cube has done, along with his movies, when it comes down to the music, his most-recognizable song is “It Was a Good Day.” The song was featured on the popular video game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. In the eyes of many, “It Was a Good Day” was one of the best songs of Ice Cube’s career.
Throughout his career, Ice Cube has been known as the ultimate bad boy. It was a sharp turn for him to come out with a song like “It Was a Good Day.” When Ice Cube is interviewed about his career, often the focus shifts to this song. However, the story is not as interesting as many would like to believe, as the song has no true focus.
Ice Cube recently revealed the “It Was a Good Day” single was not focused on a particular day. The entire story was made up on fantasies Cube was having. During the interview, Ice Cube said there was no particular day in mind. Some have said November 30, 1988, while others have said January 20, 1992.
