Ice Cube’s “It Was A Good Day” is a classic record, even if we may never know exactly what day he was talking about. A couple of months ago Donovan Strain allegedly pinned down the exact date the LA rap legend didn’t have to use his AK. However, the Huffington Post asked Cube to confirm what specific day was so good, and it turns out there were many to choose from.
The original research shows that it’s Jan 20, 1992. Someone else thinks it’s Nov 30, 1988.
I think I had a good day on both of those days. You know.
Is this your Carly Simon, “You’re So Vain,” song? That you’ll never admit when it was? Then you’ll auction the answer off some day to one guy who, under contract, can’t reveal the day?
Nah. You know — it’s a song. It’s a fictional song. It’s basically my interpretation of what a great day would be. Do you know what I’m saying? So, you know, it’s a little of this and a little of that. I don’t think you can pinpoint the day.
Considering Cube has gone from writing N.W.A’s rhymes, to dropping solo albums like AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted to carving out a legit acting career—he’ll be appearing in the 21 Jump Street film—everyday is a good day for O’Shea Jackson.
