Featuring...Ice Cube gathers up an excellent collection of team-ups indeed featuring Ice Cube. It's a simple idea for a compilation, and it works well for Priority Records, who had a lot of Cube material to draw from and a lot of hungry fans at the time. The majority of the inclusions come from Cube's pre-War & Peace albums ("Bop Gun (One Nation)" with George Clinton; "Check Yo Self," Das EFX; "Endangered Species," Chuck D; "It's a Man's World," Yo-Yo), a few from soundtracks ("Natural Born Killaz," Dr. Dre; "Trespass," Ice-T), and a few from the albums of others ("Game Over," Scarface; "West Up!," WC). Everything here is available elsewhere yet in very scattered fashion. Odds are you've heard many of these songs before but not all of them, so Featuring...Ice Cube is a welcome inclusion in the rapper's catalog. Not essential but certainly welcome, as essentially every team-up here is a classic from Cube's prime years.
