Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

"Gettin' fucked out your green by a white boy ... with no vaseline."

I love when people switch 180 degrees from where they used to be.

Ice Cube's new movie, Are We Done Yet?, seems like a fun-lovin' re-heated version of John Candy's The Great Outdoors from the 80s. Last night after watching the Are We Done Yet? trailer, I cued up his 1991 song, No Vaseline, which --- to date --- is the best 'Fuck You' Song ever recorded. He wrote it as an attack on his former band-mates, NWA. In case you had the misfortune of not hearing this song when it came out in 1991, here it is:

Here're the lyrics:
Got damn, I'm glad ya'll set it off.
Used to be hard, now you're just wet and soft.
First you was down with the AK,
and now I see you on a video with Michel'le?
Lookin' like straight bozos.
I saw it comin', that's why I went solo.
And kept on stompin',
when ya'll mothafuckers moved straight outta Compton.
Livin' with the whites, one big house,
and not another nigga in site.
I started off with too much cargo,
dropped four niggas now I'm makin' all the dough.
White man just rulin'.
The Niggas With Attitudes -- who ya foolin'?
Ya'll niggas just phony,
I put that on my mama and my dead homeys.
Yella Boy's on your team, so you're losin';
Ay yo Dre, stick to producin'.
Callin' me Arnold, but you Been-a-dick;
Eazy E saw your ass and went in it quick.
You got jealous when I got my own company,
but I'm a man, and ain't nobody helpin' me.
Tryin' to sound like Amerikkka's Most,
you could yell all day but you don't come close.
Cuz you know I'm the one that flown,
ya done run 100 miles, but you still got one to go.
With the L-E-N-C-H M-O-B, and ya'll disgrace the C-P-T.
Cuz you're gettin' fucked out your green by a white boy,
with no vaseline...
Compare that with Are We Done Yet?:

I love when people change. Only boring people keep the same opinions their whole lives, plus, "foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of weak minds."

Ice Cube knows it. Do you?
