Ice Cube – It Was a Good Day

Ice Cube’s ‘It Was a Good Day’ record is from his The Predator album, which was produced in 1992. DJ Posh produced the record. DJ Posh sampled The Isley Brothers’ “Footsteps in the Dark.’ The Isley Brothers sample sets the foundation of Ice Cube’s record. Ice Cube tells The Huffington Post the concept behind ‘It Was a Good Day’:
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? So, you know, it’s a little of this and a little of that. I don’t think you can pinpoint the day.
The sample appears at the 0:10 mark of the record and throughout.
