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, ''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.

* TakeThat: "No Vaseline". [[SarcasmMode Gee, and after such an amicable departure from N.W.A.]] "Yo Dre, stick to producin'!" "Eazy's dick is covered in MC Ren's shit!" "I'll never have dinner with the President... half pint bitch!"

"I'll never have dinner with the President... half pint bitch!"bitch!" On that note, he really lets Eazy in particular have it: "But if they were smart as me, Eazy-E would be hangin' from a tree / With no Vaseline, just a match and a little bit of gasoline / [[KillItWithFire Light 'em up, burn 'em up, flame on / Til that Jheri curl is gone.]]" ''Ouch''.

By this point Cube was a full-time member of N.W.A along with Dr. Dre and (to a lesser extent) MC Ren. Cube wrote Dr. Dre and Eazy-E's rhymes for the group's landmark album, ''Straight Outta Compton'', released in 1988. However, as 1990 approached, Cube found himself at odds with the group's manager, [[AmoralAttorney Jerry Heller]], after Heller responded to the group's financial questions by drafting up a new arrangement. As he explains in his book, since Cube wrote the lyrics to approximately half of both ''Straight Outta Compton'', and Eazy-E's solo album, ''Eazy-Duz-It'', Cube was advised of the amounts he was truly owed by Heller, and proceeded to take legal action, soon after leaving the group and the label. In response, the remaining N.W.A members attacked Cube on the EP ''100 Miles and Runnin'', as well as their next and final album, ''Efil4zaggin'' (Niggaz4life [[SdrawkcabAlias spelled backwards]]).
