Ice Cube is mad. And when the West Coast rap legend is mad, his music is that much better. Case in point, the video for “Everythang’s Corrupt,” the lead single from Cube’s forthcoming album of the same name.
The video uses controversial and graphic footage—from crooked politicians, to animals being slaughtered to natural disasters—from the media to correlate with Cube’s socio-politically charged lyrics. “It’s hot in hell’s kitchen, get ready for the lynching/Brain washed media and puppet politicians/Keep you out of position, out of commision/By medicine or food, that’s not a decision,” barks Cube.
Pretty good timing from O’Shea Jackson considering the Presidential election is just days away. Watch the T.S. Pfeffer and Robert McHugh directed video for “Everythang’s Corrupt” below. This is powerful cinema.
