Without the bodily boundaries imposed by the beat, Ice Cube turns the music right into a extra “contemplative poem,” as Rolling Stone so delicately acknowledged.

In the second video recording uploaded on the Vevo channel, Ice Cube reconfigures “Chase Down the Bully,” a music that bears a higher resemblance to the model contained on Everythang’s Corrupt, given the actual fact the topic materials is type of overpowering.  On “Chase Down the Bully” Ice Cube covers all the pieces from confronting White Nationalism to Donald Trump’s problematic border coverage.

Ice Cube raps, We’re gonna chase down the bully, hit his ass with the fully-Then we gonna string his ass up by his nuts with a pully,” in his spoken phrase cadence. These two spoken phrase stencils ought to maintain you over till his album drops at midnight. See you on the opposite aspect, padre.
