Top 10 Best Ice Cube Songs

The Top Ten
1 It Was a Good Day

This is without a doubt in the top ten greatest hip hop songs of all time. This song is deep in the sense of gangsta rap, it kind of reminds you of Stan - Eminem, Dance With the Devil - Technique. It has a good story, it gives you the feeling of relief than takes it away, because it is very rare that there is a good day in South Central L. A. and Ice cube made a song about that. The Predator is the most overshadowed Ice Cube album of all time, it is also his best piece of work!

"It Was a Good Day" is definitely Ice Cube's best song and arguably one of the greatest rap songs of all time. His flow, lyrics, and wordplay paint a clear picture of what would be Ice Cube's perfect day. The beat, sampled from The Isley Brothers' "Footsteps in the Dark", gives this song a relaxed, easy-going vibe. "It Was a Good Day" was the song that got me first hooked into rap and it's easily Ice Cube's best and most memorable song.

Great cheerful lyrics, everybody has their own best lyrically brilliant song, that everybody likes e. g. Stan - Eminem, Dance With The Devil - Immortal Technique, Changes - Tupac & Juicy - Notorious BIG. This is Ice Cubes song, A great laid back flow, with intense lyrics and a great storyline featuring an original topic. This is a more lighter side of ICe Cube. Ice Cube is definitely one of the greatest MC's of all time.

One of Ice Cube's best songs. The flows were calming and nonchalant that compliments the message and music video of the song, has solid rhymes and lyrics, and to top it all off - it's featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas!

2 No Vaseline

One of the best "diss" songs of all time. He clowned everyone in NWA one at a time. All of it original. I am from Compton, so I agree with this and Hit Em Up probably being the best two diss songs of all time. Who would rap about PAC or Cube after that dropped like that.

This song holds the classic, old, and strong vocals that Ice Cube used to use back when he was with NWA. It also has the best instrumentals that I've heard in an Ice Cube solo track. It should definitely be considered at least his second best song ever.

One of the best diss rap songs of all time. While Dr. Dre and Eazy-E were busy dissing each other, Ice Cube sent out message to all of the members of NWA in a single song! Everything was good from the relentless beats to its merciless lyrics.

I first heard this song in the movie "Straight Outta Compton" and I loved it. It is in my top3 of best rap songs ever. Lyrics are rough, but really awesome.

3 Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It

Hard choice with Ice Cube, he has so many great lyrical songs. But I chose this one because it talks about a real issue so well.

This song has to be in top 3, the beat and lyrics are just SICK, as compared to even You Know How We Do It.

Ice cube speaks the truth in this song. Ice cube is a legend. This will always be the best ice cube song.

Song has dope lyrics and a sick beat. Has to be among the top 5 no doubt about it.

4 You Know How We Do It

This song is way better than modern rap music my friends listen to!

Today Was A Good Day is great, but this song is much greater. Be this 1st place

Classic great song

Beat is awesome!

5 Check Yo Self

I prefer the original, but the instantly recognisable beat of the message does indeed suit the song.

This should be #1 then Today Was a Good Day.

The best party song ever and it is also Ice Cubes most famous hit, before Why We Thugs came out

I love the rhymes and lyrics on it and esp. the part after "chickety-check yo self"

6 Go to Church

Go To Church is Ice Cubes definite Prime song! Along with all the songs from Laugh Now Cry Later, which is better than all the other Ice Cube Albums! Los Angeles California is the place to be!

Good beat, good lyrics. Really aggressive and active (I thought DMX wrote it when I first heard it). A song you can listen over and over, and never get bored by it.

The greatest song ever invented! Laugh Now Cry Later is the great ice cube album and this is the best song off of it! Lil Jon and Snoop Dogg impress too but not as much as ICE CUBE

One of the greatest singles Ice Cube has ever released and was a big hit in the mid 2000's! It had Lil Jon and Snoop Dogg as well!

7 You Can Do It

This was always played in the dance clubs back in the day. This song has to be more popular than #20.

This song is so mainstream. Put it lower. Other songs are more deserving of the 10 spot

Definitely top 10 with where he is now compared to younger..

I don't kniw hy this song is so low on the list. Thi is by far the best ice cune song ever. The flow is amazing

8 Hello

Ice Cube's verse on this song is by far one of the best verses I've ever heard on any song, EVER. Cube's verse alone shows you how lyrical he really is.

If you don't like the hook. I don't know whats wrong with you mate. Ice Cube's best work but it could also be considered an N.W.A. track with both Dre and Ren in it

Hectic song, it has hectic written all over it! The whole war and peace vol 1 and 2 are pretty underrated albums and classics!

Great beat, nice chorus, legendary rappers in the game, awesome album etc!

9 Why We Thugs

This song is the greatest rap song evah! And HE WROTE IT! Ice Cube is a legend in the game and deserves respect whch he already has, also a fine actor, But this song goes off, I love it how he is better than most rappers nowadays!

WOW! This song is so good, it has a nice beat which had been used in many remixes and such, like Real Thugs by Eazy-E, Tupac and Ice Cube. This song should be number 1, just listen to the lyrics so good! By the way I am listening to it right now =)

Love your music the first time I heard it and love what you doing in all area of the of the business and keeping it real.God bless you all ways.

This song is amazing. It is very catchy and the lyrics are good. This is absolutely one of my favorite songs ever

10 Friday

The Contenders
11 Natural Born Killaz

Awesome lyrics and beat first Dre and cube collaboration since cube left nwa.

12 Ghetto Bird

Should be top 3 easy! This songs perfect for Grand Theft Auto SA & Grand Theft Auto 5.

Lyrically superior, w/ simple rhymes and a killer storyline!

His best song along with "It was a good day."

Best song ever

13 The N**** Ya Love to Hate

I think this should be in the top 10! Comes from Ice Cubes first album AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted. Ice cube knows people hate him for leaving NWA. People love to hate on him that's what Cube talks about. He is proud of it and I think this song is underrated

This has to be top 10. The rhythm is classic and Ice Cube destroys verses from top to bottom on this.

This is top 5 ice cube songs for sure. I'm surprised that it's not in the top 10.

At least top 5... It's a classic.

14 Once Upon a Time In the Projects

This Comes from Ice Cubes first album. AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted. Cube came from the ghetto and he's telling us what it is like in the ghetto. This is an classic no doubt.

This is probably one of the best songs of Ice Cube. He is the best rapper.

15 $100 Dollar Bill Y'all
16 I Rep that West

I agree. Album and song are both dope. Cube always reps that West. No Country For Young Men is also a track from the same album, and is just utterly insane.

The lyrics are great and the beat takes this song to an other level. Ice Cube reps that west! Best song of the decade!

This is probably his best song. He goes so hard, it's unbelievable.

17 Smoke Some Weed

Men it's the best song of Ice Cube specially if you've been high.

Love kickin back burning herbs to this!
Yay Yay!

In my opinion the best song from Ice Cube!

This should definitely be in the top 5s.

18 Steady Mobbin'

The simple and "steady" beat goes so hard; with Ice Cubes perfect lyrics, this song should be way higher on the list.

How is this not on the list already?

19 AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted
20 Bop Gun (One Nation)

Such a feel good song like It Was A Good Day - should definitely be so much higher on this list!

This song is dope yo

21 Wicked

Just a hardcore song with a hardcore beat. Love it.

22 Ghetto Vet

This is ice cube's best song in my opinion. The lyrics and the beat are hectic in this song. Get this song into the top 5

This is is Ice Cube at his finest.

23 A Gangsta's Fairytale

So you Know Fairy tales right? All fake and its fantasy.
Well Ice Cube made a fairytale that is real and comes from the Streets his reality.
This song is Ice cubes reality come to life.
You can say it's a Gangstas Fairytale.

Dope ass cut. Cube is most definitely the greatest mc there is.

Best rhyme ever
