Ice Cube released his debut solo album 'Amerikkka's Most Wanted' through Priority Records on this day in 1990. "As the lyrical architect behind N.W.A.'s groundbreaking debut, Straight Outta Compton, Cube helped usher in the gangsta rap era, and positioned himself as one of Hip-Hop's most feared lyricists. That reputation expanded even further when the Cali native severed ties with N.W.A. in 1990 because of shady business practices, and went solo on that ass." With production by the Bomb Squad, Ice Cube "crafted a thought-provoking manuscript that tackled everything from racism and politics to gang culture and sex. Hailed for its superior production, and equally exceptional lyricism, the project went gold within two weeks -- a feat that was unheard of for rap in the early '90s." Arguably Ice Cube's greatest LP, the impact & inspiration from this album are still felt today.
