[Way Back When] Ice Cube – It Was A Good Day by wearesme

Released in 1993 It Was a Good Day is taken from Ice Cube’s third solo album The Predator. The sample used in the song is from the Isley Brothers’ track Footsteps In The Dark.

The song featured in the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas game in 2004 on the ‘Radio Los Santos’ radio station. More recently though, the song featured in a Nike advert starring top skateboarder Paul Rodriguez with some cameos from Kobe Bryant, Eric Koston and of course Ice Cube himself, which you can watch below.
