With Straight Outta Compton making a killing at the box office this weekend, I started wondering if today’s younger generation only knows Ice Cube as the star of a bunch of lame family comedies and aren’t even aware of his controversial ascent to stardom in the rap group, N.W.A..

In 1986, when he was only 17 years old, Cube and one of his fellow C.I.A. group members, K-Dee, recorded this rare, little-heard single with the classy title, “She’s a Skag”.
