Truthfully, Ice Cube was supposed to kick this column off. He told me his song “Supreme Hustle” off War & Peace Vol. 2 (The Peace Disc) was criminally slept on. Unfortunately, his explanation was deleted on my recorder. Damn. But the show must go on and to usher things in the right way is Noreaga. N.O. reasons that “Grimey” off God’s Favorite should’ve been bigger and thinks “Bang Bang” was marred by the shooting outside Hot 97. Sidebar: On The […]
