Long before Ice Cube claimed his position as the 21st Century Bill Cosby, he was one of hip hop’s most-imposing figures. What started this trend was Ice Cube filming the classic Boyz N The Hood film and enjoying it. Always raising awareness and putting it out there, Ice Cube wanted to do something different in 1993.
When 1993 came, Ice Cube decided to deliver his third album, The Predator, and he created a classic with the second single. “It Was A Good Day” was the second single off The Predator, but the song later got a second life. In 2004, Rockstar Games included the song on Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The song samples The Isley Brothers’ 1977 single, “Footsteps In The Dark.” This song is definitely a throwback, as Ice Cube references “Yo! MTV Raps” and the Seattle Supersonics, two things that appear to never be coming back. But, Hip Hop Vibe is here and viewers are welcome to reminisce on Ice Cube.
