Ice Cube is considered one of the greatest West Coast rappers and one of the best gangsta rappers of all time. Since he's such an influential rapper, let’s rank the best Ice Cube albums, with the help of your votes. As the first member to defect from N.W.A. in 1989, Ice Cube quickly proved that he was one of the greatest lyricists and rappers of the genre by releasing his first two albums, AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted (1990) and Death Certificate (1991).

This Ice Cube discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Ice Cube albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Ice Cube singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums.

This list of popular Ice Cube CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Ice Cube album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
