Ice Cube has always been one of my favorite rappers of all time. I have never made a Hip Hop training mix that does not include a plethora of Ice Cube tracks.

One of the best lyricists of all time, Cube brings anger, aggression, and intensity in almost all of his songs. These are a few of the ingredients that every training session needs.

So, here are my top 15 Ice Cube training songs.
15. Pushin’ Weight – (War & Peace Vol. 1) – Great Cube song to get you going. Big in the clubs, but I love training to it too. Gets you up quick.

14. Now I gotta wet cha – (The Predator ) – Steady beats, and Cube still goes hard in this one. Another great one to get you going.

13. Go to Church – (Laugh now, Cry Later ) – Collaboration with Snoop. One of Cube’s newer songs, but steady flow and hits hard too.

12. We Be Clubbin’ – (Greatest Hits) – This is another Club song, but I always have this on my training mix when I mix in Cube.

11. Trespass – (Trespass Soundtrack) – Cube and Ice-T team up on this one. Not many people know this one from Cube, but it’s a staple if you are a real Ice Cube fan. Intense and great to train to.

10. No Vaseline – (Death Certificate) – This is vintage Cube. Angry, aggressive and out for blood.

9. Nigga you love to hate – (Americkkka’s Most Wanted) – “Once again its on, the mother fucking psycho” Steady flow, hard and angry. Cube brings it the whole time.

8. Ghetto Vet – (War & Peace Vol. 1) – Building intensity on this one. Give it time. Slow, steady flow, but gets your head into the “game”

7. Do Ya Thang – (Raw Footage) Newer Ice Cube. A lot of people haven’t heard a lot of Cube’s newer music. I love this one. Reminds me of vintage Cube.

6. Hood Mentality –( Raw Footage ) – Great training song, but can’t help but to get caught up in the lyrics on this one. This is becoming one of my favorite Cube songs.

5. Amerikkkas Most Wanted – (Americkkka’s Most Wanted) – This reminds me of his NWA days. Hard, raw, and intense.

4. Endangered Species – (Americkkka’s Most Wanted)- This one comes at you hard. The intensity builds from beginning to end. Should be a staple on your old school training mix. Plus, the great Chuck D is in this one too, which adds to its greatness.

3. Natural Born Killaz – (Murder Was the Case soundtrack)- One of my favorite training songs ever! Cube teams up with Dr. Dre. It’s a classic and on almost every one of my training mixes. Vintage Dre and Cube. Turn this one up!

2. Wicked – (The Predator) – One of Cube’s most hard hitting, intense songs and one of the best to train to, especially when you need to huge boost or ready to hit a PR. This is a staple on almost any hip hop training mix.

1. When Will They Shoot? (The Predator) – Other than “Wicked” this is my favorite Cube song to train to when I really need to get up. This was never one of his most famous tracks, but IMO, one of his best! I have hit many PRs to this song. Play this loud and get ready to destroy it in the gym.

    We definitely need more playlists like this. Great list and even though it’s not Cube solo, Dope Man has got to be a part of this list as well!

    We Be Clubbin is good, but We Be Clubbin Eye of The Tiger Remix is a whole other level.
