"You ain't made shit dope since Amerikkka's Most"- Common from "The Bitch In Yoo." I wouldn't exactly agree with that statement, but "Amerikka's Most Wanted" is definitely the best record Ice Cube ever made, and one of the best albums of the early 90s. Cube had just left NWA and instead enlisted the East Coast's finest, the Bomb Squad (responsible for all of PE's early albums). "Who's The Mack" takes the smoothest approach to clowning mack zuggin and the hoes that follow them. Flashing lines like "rollin in a fucked up lincoln, leanin to the side so it look like he's sinkin, into that leopard interior," Cube is at his story-telling best. The Bomb Squad laces the track in their typical fashion- organized mayhem. Wheelbarrel is loaded with pianos, flutes, chicks moaning, horns, some Barry White sounding guy, basslines, and guitars but it's all so simple. Check the classic children's story flip of "Gangsta's Fairytale." Also includes "The Nigga Ya Love To Hate," the title track, "You Can't Fade Me," "Get Off My Dick," "It's a Man's World" with Yo-Yo, etc.
