* ChangedForTheVideo: The version of "Check Yourself" on ''The Predator'' uses a different beat (the same one Music/SaltNPepa used for "Shoop"), while the video and radio versions used the remix sampling [[Music/GrandmasterFlashAndTheFuriousFive Grandmaster Flash's]] "The Message".

* GangstaRap: Of the Blue Collar type.



* HeavyMeta: "Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It" talks about how gangsta rap is often used as an easy scapegoat for any kind of wrongdoing. In short, it's half this half TakeThat to MoralGuardians.

Cube recorded his debut solo album in Los Angeles with the Bomb Squad (Music/PublicEnemy's production team). ''[=AmeriKKKa's=] Most Wanted'' was released in 1990 and was an instant hit, riding and contributing to the rising tide of rap's popularity in mainstream society. The album was charged with controversy, and Cube was accused of misogyny, and racism. Subsequently, Cube appointed the female rapper Yo-Yo (who appeared on ''[=AmeriKKKa's=] Most Wanted'') to the head of his own record label and helped produce her debut album, ''Make Way for the Motherlode''. This was followed by a critically acclaimed role as Doughboy in John Singleton's hood-based drama, ''Film/BoyzNTheHood''. In the same year as ''[=AmeriKKKa's=] Most Wanted'', Cube released the acclaimed EP, ''Kill At Will''. ''Kill At Will'' sold well, becoming the first hip hop EP to go both Gold and Platinum.
