Ice Cube: Bootlegs & B-Sides (1994)

ice cube bootlegs

By Scott Goldfine

In lieu of his fifth new album in as many years, trendsetting gangsta rapper Ice Cube has released “Bootlegs & B-Sides,” a mix of new tracks, outtakes and remixes. What on the surface appears to be a castoff project turns out to pack nearly as much punch as one of his full-blown affairs.

The new tunes, such as the bristling “My Skin Is My Sin,” and the outtakes make this LP necessary.
