Ice Cube revealed the real inspiration behind his 1992 classic "It Was A Good Day." There have been several blogs speculating on the actual events surrounding the song, and the hip hop star has spoke to the Huffington Post about where the song really came from.
“You know — it’s a song. It’s a fictional song. It’s basically my interpretation of what a great day would be. Do you know what I’m saying?” Cube confessed. “So, you know, it’s a little of this and a little of that. I don’t think you can pinpoint the day.”
Hip hop obsessives have speculated, based on mentions of the weather, a reference to the Lakers playing and beating the Seattle Supersonics, and a line about a lack of violence in Los Angeles, that the day was either January 20th, 1992 or November 30th, 1988.
