XXL's making of Cube's AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted Re-Up

The (Bruce) Rioch Gang in full effect.

After the post I made about it back in June a few people asked if I could scan the entire thing properly. Of course, it'd be breaching copyright laws for me to do such a thing, but I just happened to chance upon some scans, y'know, elsewhere so I'm reposting them here. Click on the images to read them full size.

Ice Cube - Who's The Mack?

There were two singles released from AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted, but out of the two, Who's The Mack (the other was the title track) was the only one afforded a video. Kinda bad decision making on all fronts from Cube and Priority Records there because You Can't Fade Me, Once Upon A Time In The Projects, and A Gangsta's Fairytale would've made much better singles/videos. Musn't grumble, though, because O'Shea's wearing a fly black Lench Mob t-shirt in it and any video footage of him with his jheri-curl should be cherished.

Did you get publisher's permission to breach the copyright like this? Very diligent if yes.

This is another one of the rap albums that you mention that I've actually listened to. I don't remember much about it now though.

Oh, I just found them on another site and I'm merely reposting them here.

Amazing album. One of the first HHCs I remember was all about it...and Edutainment I think.

Love Who's The Mack though, always reminded me a bit of Lakim's Style Wars.

Don't get it twisted, I love Who's The Mack and the video is cool, I just think the 3 songs I mentioned would've made better singles as they're all storytelling songs and songs with a narrative generally make for great/interesting videos.

"Whos The Mack" was definitely a strange choice for a single as although its a good song its far from a standout track on the album. An animated, uncut Gangstas Fairytale video couldve been the best thing ever though
