“War and Peace Vol. 1
(The War Disc)”
Ice Cube is now going the Guns
’n’ Roses route of releasing
records: a double album with each
record sold separately. Hopefully,
the second installment will make
up for the first half.
The rap pioneer turned actor
then rapper again has released
“War and Peace Vol. 1 (The War
Disc),” his first solo album of orig
inal work since 1993’s “Lethal
Injection,” which displays Ice
Cube in classic, pissed-off form.
Unfortunately, the heavy beats
and intense rhymii^j are displayed
at the expense of4ny interesting
hooks. Because older Ice Cube
fans will compare this album to
more hook-heavy previous efforts,
“The War Disc” will not live up to
That’s not to say there aren’t
any jewels within the 18-track mini
opera; they’re just a little hard to
find. Straight-up rapping with a

some songs because they’re sim

However, other songs are more
often funny than well-written.
Songs such as the first single
“Pushin’ Weight” are typical, with
its lame similes and bad backup
vocals by Mr. Short Khop. It’s
unfortunate, but this album would

Death Row Records
At firstglance, the untimely
death of famed rapper 2Pac seemed
like an inevitable conclusion.
His ornery boasting and gun-rid
dled lyrics often dealt with tales of
violence that eerily mimicked the
details of his own demise.
But for those who are familiar
with 2Pac’s work on more than a sur
face level, his death left a disheart
ening blow to the artistic world, in
general, and the musical world
specifically. 2Pac may have dealt in
violence, but he also lamented it. He
not only told stories about shooters
but alsjo about those who were shot

“Greatest Hits” is a two-disc set
that includes 21 recognizable
favorites and four previously unre
leased tracks that show what might
have been. After only five albums,
culling two discs’ worth of “great

daunting task. But 2Pac’s legacy was

merit, and this collection reflects

Most people think of the
Christmas season as a time to spend
with those closest to them, a time to
quietly reflect on love, spirituality and
The Lincoln Community
Playhouse is inviting the public to
share that spirit with their closest
friends - about 75 of them.
“Babes in Toyland,” a holiday
musical by Victor Herbert, opened
Thursday night at the LCP. Its run con
tinues tonight and ends Dec. 20. With
its unusually large cast - including 75
singers, actors and dancers - “Babes
in Toyland” is the largest Christmas
production LCP has ever attempted.
According to Rod McCullough,
executive director of LCP, the size of
the production was ah initial concern.
“When you try to tackle something
this big, with this many people, you
have to be careful,” McCullough said.
“It’s easy to be overcome by the logis
tics alone, without even considering
the more important aspects.”
But preparation and a focus on
organization have reined in this
unwieldy holiday production.
“We’re glad to say that we man
aged to not only put this together, but
put it together well,” McCullough
