Happy Birthday to NWA rapper, actor & producer, Ice Cube. "Bitch, I got Rick James in my veins." - IC

On Rick James’ influence in his own life, Ice Cube said in an interview:

‘Street Songs’ is kind of like the first gangster record. I felt like he was talking to me. It was the most hard-core record you could get at the time. There wasn’t anything else that I could remember - maybe a couple of rap records was out - but as far as R&B, this was about as hard and on the edge as you could get.”

Go ‘Street Songs’ on 12” LP now:
