Today In Hip-Hop | Ice Cube Releases 'It Was A Good Day'

August 17 really was a good day, not only for Ice Cube, but for hip-hop worldwide.

The hit single detailing a young Cube cruising throughout South Central Los Angeles chasing women, gambling and not getting arrested, quickly became one of the most iconic songs of all time.

The idea was that if you could ride around the gang capital of America without getting your car pinched or shot for a long list of reasons, you'll be pretty chuffed. From that same feeling of thankfulness and realism came 'It Was A Good Day' - arguably his best work.

Bump this one at a level that's deafening when your cruising through your hometowns, and celebrate the man taking the culture from strength to strength, and this song turning 21!
