"Death Certificate", brûlot social et politique est jeté à la face de l'Amérique blanche fin 1991 Un album annonciateur pour beaucoup des émeutes qui enflammeront Los Angeles en avril 1992 après l'acquittement des policiers ayant tabassé Rodney King. Véritable chronique urbaine,."Death Certificate" transpire l'urgence et la colère. Quitte à heurter. le "nigga you love to hate" a compris que le scandale lui permettait de décupler ses ventes, et il s'en sert. Passé maître dans l'art du story telling ,Cube enfonce le clou avec quelques joyaux du genre ('My Summer Vacation', ou encore le glaçant 'Alive On Arrival', récit de sa propre mort). S'il reste dans la droite lignée de "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted", ce second LP sonne néanmoins plus brut et dépouillé que son prédécesseur. S'appuyant sur un flow carré et impeccable, une voix énergique pleine de hargne et une écriture simple, précise et maîtrisée, Ice Cube s'impose à travers cet album comme LE modèle du rappeur : violent, conscient, engagé, cru et controversé. "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted" prouvait que le MC de South Central était l'un des tous meilleurs de sa génération. Véritable torpille sonore et lyricale, "Death Certificate" le fait tout simplement entrer au panthéon du hip-hop.(Julien abcédaire du son)

This album has so many good tracks on it I probably could list them all -- some are: "Wrong N**** to F*** Wit", My Summer Vacation", "Steady Mobbin'", "Man's Best Friend" (one of the 1st tracks to sample George Clinton's "Atomic Dog"), and "Bird in the Hand".
Also, this album has the greatest diss-track ever -- "No Vaseline" which is about Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, and the rest of NWA
This album has great funk-induced beats (that was popular in 1990's rap), and Ice Cube covers several issues of that time in the album.
It is an essential album, but the material may seem dated for the youngin's.
After the intro "The Funeral," the album begins with "The Wrong N... to F... Wit," a threatening and tough song where Cube introduces his Lench Mob crew and represents his hometown, starting the album on a great note. The funky "My Summer Vacation" explores gang activity and violence in a factual and honest manner. On "Steady Mobbin,'" Cube drops raw philosophy over a dope beat. "Givin' Up the Nappy Dugout" has a perfect, classic beat and is hilarious, Cube has a conversation with a girl's father, telling him she's not as innocent as he seems to believe. "Look Who's Burnin'" deals with STDs and their spread and advocates their prevention, this is just one of those relevant songs with a positive message that is still so entertaining because it is told froma man who sounds so real. The sax loop in the beat makes this song great. "A Bird in the Hand" is another classic, musically and lyrically. Ice Cube metaphorically speaks of drug dealings. "Man's Best Friend" talks about the necessity of packing a gun in the ghetto and has another great beat. "Alive on Arrival" is an amazing song, telling a tale of being shot and the ensuing drama. Its message attacks the way that hospitals and police operate. "I Wanna Kill Sam" attacks the country at large, and "Horny Lil' Devil" pokes fun at white men who come to the hood looking for women and riches. "Black Korea" is a short, very interesting song. Cube talks about how he dislikes the operation of Asian-owned stores in the ghetto, and while it is controversial it's very compelling to hear what he has to say. The ultra-funky "True to the Game" is an exercise in great production and lyricism. "Color Blind" talks about the way that men will kill another based on the gang colors they wear, with more great musical backings. "Doin' Dumb S..." is funny, talking about mistakes he made growing up, and the beat is heavy with horns. "No Vaseline" is a great song where the MC lashes out at the rappers and management of his former group NWA. The album ends with the entertaining and self explanatory "How to Survive in South Central." The skits on this album are all funny and contribute to the feeling of the album, dealing with the same topics as the rest of the disc.
"Death Certificate" is completely amazing from start to finish. Never has a man put so much heart and emotion into a rap album, and this is a true standard that any rap act should hope to match. Every fan of hip hop must have this album, and fans new to Ice Cube should certainly not hesitate to purchase this disc. This record is legendary in every way and deserves all the recognition it has warranted.
but there is no way anyone can deny the absolutely incredible musicality at work here. the massively underrated sir jinx as well as cube himself craft unbelievable beats obviously heavily influenced by the bomb squad production on the first ice cube record. the amount of texture and depth to these beats, and the inventiveness and precision of the sample use, results in some of the finest beats ever heard in hip hop. some of the best bits include the muffled drunken wail of the horns and the funky breakdown on "black korea", the huge snare on "man's best friend", the ridiculous vocal sample on "my summer vacation", the bird call scratches on "a bird in the hand". and ice cube as a rapper - his turn of phrase, his rhythm and his immense voice - was never and has not been better. every syllable is ferociously slammed onto the beat like one of those licence plate machines and enunciated with such unbelievable clarity and power.
not for the weak of heart or mind. but a infinitely rewarding musical experience
Produced by Sir Jinx, Ice Cube himself, and The Boogiemen (DJ Pooh, Bobcat & Rashad), Death Certificate has the usual DOPE Ice Cube production. His first album (AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted), laced by Public Enemy producers The Bomb Squad, Sir Jinx & Cube, had unique East meets West production, which was pretty much continued on this one, but with only West Coast producers this time.
As usual Cube rips the album with tons of storytelling, and just the overall great lyricism that makes Ice Cube an elite MC.
Top 5 Songs (In Order):
1. No Vaseline - Diss to N.W.A., and my favorite diss track of all time. Dope beat, and just hard hitting lyrics.
2. Steady Mobbin' - Maybe the best beat on the CD, and one of Cube's best lyrically.
3. My Summer Vacation - Another NICE storytelling song, with another just FUNKY beat
4. Alive On Arrival - Great storytelling song, and produced extremely well
5. I Wanna Kill Sam - Most creative song on the album, nice concept and it was done extremely well
