A Gangsta’s World View : Ice Cube in The Source (1990)

Ice Cube was on the cover of the 1990 summer issue of The Source, no interview inside but a strange analysis supporting Ice Cube’s chauvinistic stance.

To fully understand the last paragraph (“Why do my posse and I have fun shouting along with Ice Cube ? He caters to our fantasies in a world where we feel so powerless.”), you have to realize that the writer Dan Charnas is a white american male who, at that time, was a&r at Tommy Boy Profile..

Audio is Ice Cube, Sir Jinx and K-Dee first single.

    I came to this website to beg to you, SLurg, to PLEASE post the Simply II Positive demo. I am a HUGE Organized Konfusion, Pharoahe Monch, Prince Po fan. I at one time had the whole demo, but my computer crashed. I think I had gotten the demo from Vinyl Addicts, a now defunct hip-hop blog. I am BEGGING you, or anyone with the demo, to please post it somewhere or send it to me if you could be so kind. I am really desperate for this. Please. Thank You.

    P.S. I have already gotten the 2 songs from the demo you have posted and thanks for those BTW.
