More About the Author

Joel McIver (born 1971) is a British author. The best-known of his 25 books to date is the bestselling Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica, first published in 2004 and appearing in nine languages since then. McIver's other works include biographies of Black Sabbath, Slayer, Ice Cube and Queens Of The Stone Age. His writing also appears in newspapers and magazines such as The Guardian, Metal Hammer, Classic Rock and Rolling Stone, and he is a regular guest on music-related BBC and commercial radio.

In the introduction to Neil Daniels' 2009 book All Pens Blazing, veteran writer Martin Popoff described McIver as "probably the top [rock] scribe in the world". In a book review in April 2012, Classic Rock magazine labelled McIver "by some distance Britain's most prolific hard rock/metal author".

As well as writing his own books, McIver also co-writes the autobiographies of rock musicians. The first of these was the memoir of sometime Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes, published in May 2011. McIver is also the co-writer of books by Max Cavalera (Sepultura, Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy) and Megadeth bass player David Ellefson, both of which were published in late 2013.

Ice Cube "Attitude" is a quiet well depiction of Ice Cube's
way to becoming one of the world's greatest rappers and black artists in general. It's well written and an intresting read for Ice Cube fans that just wanna know about Ice Cube's life. Yet it's not very suitable Hip Hop fans, because on the one hand the Author tries to involve Hip Hop culture in his book by depicting some facts about Hip Hop culture in order to show its significance to the life of Ice Cube and his development, which would be a good thing to do in a book about Ice Cube, but on the other hand it seems as if the author doesn't really know anything about Hip Hop culture as well as about some bands, which had a certain significance to Ice Cube's story as a rapper, that are mentioned in is book, e.g. the author says Cypress Hill is a band form the East Coast!
Don't get me wrong, its a very intresting book about the person Ice Cube but the author shouldn't try to "explain" several circumstances in Hip Hop culture itself.

Not being a fan of rap in any way, shape or form I opened this book w/ a pretty closed mind. As I turned the pages, I found Ice Cube to be much more than just a rapper. The author does an
excellent job of portraying the man's life not only in regards to his music but his work as an actor, writer & director. Through Mr. McGiver's words, I discovered what a hard working, determined & intelligent man Ice Cube is. This is a great source of information for Cube fans & a good read even for those who don't care for his music. Well done Mr. McGiver! This book was interesting enough to keep my attention despite the fact that I had absolutely no interest in the man before I turned the 1st page.

This is another attempt by a guy who always raps about being shot at and killing people and whatever but is still alive and making childrens films. Not really that hardcore huh. It is no suprise then, that we see, this guy pull yet another marketing scheme where he gets someone to lie, embellish and make up facts to make you think that ice-cube is a tough guy.

I reckon he could sell ice-cubes to the eskimos. If you want to know about his life, I suggest you go to his mansion somewhere in Beverley Hills, ring his dora the explorer doorbell and have high tea with him out on the terrace.

just cos he frowns a lot and makes up hardcore stories doesn't mean he lives it. He is an actor and is portraying a character to everyone and getting away with it.

wake up everyone, this is what mcdonalds and politicians have been selling you all your life. Don't buy into it, take a stand today.
