Recordings and Interscope Records, which at the time was distributed through Eastwest Records America and Atlantic Records.

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Vinyl LP pressing. Back-to-back tracks in the middle of Lethal Injection are all the proof we need that Ice Cube is a great talent. "What Can I Do?" opens with a strings-and-wah-wah motif from an early-'70s blaxploitation film and follows with a "Superfly" tale about a high-level drug dealer. Next up is "Lil Ass Gee," the story of a 12-year-old wanna-be gangster. Just a few years ago he was playing with G.I. Joe dolls, and now he's playing with real guns and making real babies. On both numbers, the rapper's rich, resonant baritone bleeds into the synth strings with a sense of fatefulness that's chilling to hear. Ice Cube is a mesmerizing storyteller, a seductive vocalist, and a brilliantly inventive producer of aural collages.

Mama Said Knock You Out is a certifiable hip-hop classic showcasing LL's return to form that solidified his legendary status in the rap game. The album would go on to sell over two million copies and arguably become the biggest of his career. LL took an active role even in the visuals for the project, suggesting a photo from a Vogue Italy magazine shoot that would inspire the minimalist cover design. Already a rap veteran at the young age of twenty-two, LL understood the tightrope of fame and street cred that he was walking. While lesser men would have cracked under the pressures of coming of age on wax, L was able to synthesize his growing pains into platinum records. What may have begun as teenage braggadocio on Radio had now matured to the delicate confidence of a grown man facing adversity and taking on life's challenges head-on.
