Video: Ice Cube – Everythang’s Corrupt

In Hip Hop by Nick Russell

The veteran LA superstar goes back to his roots on this new heavy metal flavoured head banger, exposing the widespread corruption of the society and government. He’s backed up with some heavy guitar riffs from Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello on this, from his upcoming 10th solo LP. Timed days before the Presidential election the perspective is fully an angry social/global political tip.

For those of you who may have “given up” on Cube, but if you’re into the likes of Killer Mike, Immortal Technique, Dead Prez etc. this a chance to re-evaluate! 

“To me, it’s kinda more a political leap than a first single. The timing is right,” O’Shea Jackon told MTV News – “To me I just feel like the hip-hop heads that are political will really like this record.”
