Song of the Day 8/11/09

Yeah, yeah, more new stuff coming soon. Promise. In the meantime, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Tuesday’s song is #351:

Ice Cube – Ghetto Vet

Over one of the eeriest piano samples in the history of rap, Cube bitterly narrates one smalltime thug’s descent from menace in the hood to wheelchair-bound crack addict. Mp3s all over the place. From the War cd in the 1998 two-cd War & Peace album.
