Terrorist Threats [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
A long seven years after the gangsta rap supergroup Westside Connection released Bow Down, one of the definitive West Coast gangsta rap albums of the '90s, they reunited in 2003 for a second go-round, Terrorist Threats. The state of the rap union had changed a lot since 1996, which was the height of the original gangsta era, back when 2Pac and Biggie were still alive and in their prime. So it's a little unsettling to hear the trio of veteran gangstas in Westside Connection -- Ice Cube, WC, and Mack 10 -- still trying to rally the "Gangsta Nation" circa 2003, the year of young gunners like 50 Cent and pretty-boy skirt-chasers like Chingy. Yet the old-fashioned gangsta ...

Yet the old-fashioned gangsta growl of Westside Connection seems all the more poignant as a result -- as if they were ghosts of gangsta past, back to haunt listeners -- especially on songs like "So Many Rappers in Love," where these O.G.s call out their much younger, "21 Questions"-asking contemporaries. Not everything on Terrorist Threats is gruff and bitter, though. Standout songs like "Gangsta Nation" and "Lights Out" have plenty of feel-good swerve, especially when the likes of Nate Dogg and Knoc-Turn'al grace the hooks.

    Like a blast from the past, kind of

    This album reminds me of the old days when gangsta rap was king. Ice cube was raw and untarnished by the mainstream. Those were certainly the days before our words like thug, what's crackin and bust a cap were replaced with shizzle, izo and illmatic. This album will never get play in my ride. Unfortunately, I already know that Cube is a psudo movie star and knowing that, I can't listen to him rap about being a "killa". I just aint buying it. Then Mac-10.... Now he's supposed to be into the bling bling style? Nah dawg, that aint you. Then theres WC. WC has been the same since I first heard him. That's what I like. While Cube is making chump films and Mac10 is chilling at home in Atlanta, WC is being WC. This album is alright if you can get past what these fools are like now. If you can suspend everything you know about em and take this as plain old entertainment, you could like this. If you can't, then this aint for you. At the end of the day gangsta rap as we knew it is over. Not that we don't have any eager participants willing to fill the shoes of our beloved Pacs and NWA's, it's just that nobody's able.

    An awesome CD...

    This was a much-awaited release for me. The amazing combination of Ice Cube, WC, and Mack 10 is genius, as always, and this CD didn't disappoint me in the slightest. It is MUCH better than the extreme unoriginality of what rap has become. It's wonderful to hear some really good gangsta rap again.
