With the presidential election just days away, Ice Cube causes commotion with the powerful video for “Everythang’s Corrupt” featuring Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello. The politically and socially-charged song serves as the title track from his forthcoming album, due next spring.
Never one to bite his tongue, the notorious rap rebel vents about hot topics as images of world tragedies, politicians, and celebrities flash across the screen.
“With the election so close, it’s time to put down the club/booty music and talk about real issues,” said Cube, who raps over a sample of Betty Wright’s 1968 hit “Girls Can’t Do What the Guys Do.” “‘Everythang’s Corrupt’ is a sign of the times song that highlights the ills of today’s society. I pride myself on delivering street knowledge. This song and video is no exception.”
