Shuffle Song Of The Day (5/2/23): “You Know How We Do It” By Ice Cube

“You Know How We Do It” is a song by the legendary West Coast rapper Ice Cube, and it was the second single from from his fourth solo album, Lethal Injection, which was released in 1993


This song has way more of a g-funk sound than gangsta rap, evident by its usage of samples from songs by Evelyn King, Kool and the Gang, and Michael Jackson. I love this song and old Ice cube, seeing as this made well before he embarked on his career of starring in terrible movies. The movie “Are We There Yet?” isn’t really about a vacation at all, and is actually a question to Ice Cube on whether he was at the point of selling out as far as you possibly can or not yet. I guess you either die a gangster, or live long enough to see yourself become a corny dad in family comedy movies
