I think Ice Cube should be on the same level as Tupac. Tupac was a better actor but Ice Cube did everything before 2pac did it. Before Hit 'Em Up there was No Vaseline, before Pac was controversal Ice Cube was claiming to be "the ***** ya love to hate". What you guys think? Is 2Pac a better emcee and icon then Ice Cube or is 2Pac not even on Cube's level. Need some input guys.

I never liked Cube's music, but I like his acting. Hes a great actor.

I think he gets the respect he deserves at least from people I know who are my age and remember he was the **** before anyone ever heard of Tupac.........But I think musically Pac did more influencial things his music was just deeper and more personal IMO........He was also a more Passionate actor than Ice Cube.Much respect to both from me. :cool:

think of it though...before all eyez on me there was amerikka's most wanted and death certificate. before there was hit em up there was "no vaseline". before there was controversy cube was the ***** ya love to hate. Cube was one of the first gangster rappers in hip hop.

He really should be on the same level as Pac...maybe if he died..

I would put them on the same level. Cube is the reason Eazy-E was good. MC Ren is another underrated artist from the west.

i really rate cube especially his 90s stuff, people harp on about todays but back then cube ren, dre, e ****in rocked.
I think cos hes doing quite well in films people forget where he started out.

He's overall had pretty average hip hop records post NWA. His acting and production of the three Friday movies is straight up superb though. I love those flicks, especially the last two.

Better than Pac? No. Ice Cube is great MC, and a good actor. but he can't hold a candle to Pac. Cube lost respect has a rapper(not in my eyes but in the eyes of others)for talkin' gangsta an' not being that. Pac hasn't lost a bit of respect an' he's been gone for 10 or 11 yrs.
