After Common called out the west coast rap style and the themes associated with gangsta rap, Ice Cube recorded this track in response to Common’s song ‘I Used To Love H.E.R.”. Ice Cube goes as far as to claim “Hip Hop started in the west Ice Cube bailin' through the east without a vest” showing his anger about the notion that west coast hip hop is hurting the hip hop scene in general. The G-Funk style is definitely portrayed with the pounding beats and violent lyrics.
