Ice Cube - AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted [The Samples]




UPDATED
(5/16/2010)

Released in 1990, "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted" created something of a storm in the world of hip hop, particularly on the West coast. To craft this masterful album, Ice Cube had to take a pilgrimage to the home of the genre, New York City, to work with legendary production team The Bomb Squad. But it all paid off as Cube dropped a classic which stayed true to his West coast background: packed with murderous lyrics and funky samples galore. (Our boy FXS hooked us up once again -- and I added a couple tracks -- for this one, so make sure to thank him in the comment section.) Beginning a string of heavy-hitting solo albums, many consider "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted" to be Cube at his finest. I can't say that I disagree; I can say that I'm proud to present to you the sample set for this great album! Enjoy, and remember - West Up!

  1. Ivan & FXS you are monsters for this one! This was a classic joint and one of the landmarks in Hip Hop/Rap music genre....one of the West Coasts best hooking up with one of the best production crews from the East Coast to bring nothing but heat rocks! Thank you for giving us the blueprints and history that comes with having the O.G. samples that helped create this masterpiece! If Brian Coleman ("Rakim told Me" & "Check the Technique") would put shit like this in his books they would have even more value! Thanks again and keep up the good work.
