Today on our producer spotlight, we highlight the work of famed producer DJ Muggs and his work with one of the illest MC’s of all time, Ice Cube. Rewind back to 1992 and Cube’s 3rd album, The Predator.
The Predator is the third studio album by Ice Cube. Released within months of the 1992 Los Angeles riots, many songs comment on the racial tensions. The title is in part reference to the movie Predator 2, and the album itself includes samples from the film. Though not his most critically successful album, commercially The Predator is Ice Cube’s most successful album, reaching double platinum status in the United States, and it contains his most well-known single, “It Was a Good Day.” The Predator is his only number one album on the Billboard 200 to date, selling 193,000 copies in its first week. It has sold 2,210,283 to date, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
