During Ice Cube’s six-year journey of completing his latest project Everythang’s Corrupt there was quite a bit of material recorded. During this time frame Ice Cube was also working on producing the film Straight Outta Compton and the Big3 basketball league. This resulted in Cube’s album release pushed back several times. The title track “Everythang’s Corrupt” recorded in 2012 did appear in the recently released album in its original form. There were a series of additional tracks recorded from 2012 to 2015 that were put out as singles as well as a mixtape titled Remain Calm.

The first track to mention from 2013 was “Crowded”. A track similar in vein to his classic “We Be Clubbin’”. This was followed up by “Sasquatch” and “Sic Them Youngins On ‘Em”. Both of these tracks also received video treatment. In the “Sic Them Youngins On’Em” video you can clearly see promo material showcasing the Everythang’s Corrupt project.

In 2015 Ice Cube released his first official mixtape Remain Calm. The first track to mention is “How I Act in a Low Low” which also featured Tupac and Biggie. Another prominent track is “Architect of Gangsta Rap” produced by E-A-Ski. Other album worthy tracks from the project include “New Order” and “Reckless In the Booth” featuring Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. going by his moniker OMG.

There was an eight-year gap between I Am the West and Everythang’s Corrupt. For those paying attention Ice Cube was putting out material that many would deem album worthy. The fact that he left the original “Everythang’s Corrupt” recorded in 2012 on the new album shows he is a timeless artist. An individual who’s career spans three plus decades and still relevant as ever.
