If anyone ever says that Ice Cube is not in the absolute upper echelon of all-time great rappers, they are wrong. In his prime, he was as good as it gets. Still, his decline in the late-'90s was steep, culminating with the release of this tepid bit of club fare that actually throws the virtues of "We Be Clubbin'" into stark relief. The song barely scraped the Top 40 in America. But the British, always eager to give us reasons to question their appreciation of hip-hop, took a bizarre interest in the track in 2004, sending it to No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart five years after its release.
