    Ice Cube, in 2006, just sounds so tired... like he took flows that weren't quite good enough for War and Peace Vol. 2, and no amount of guest stars or name producers can cover up for the lack of hunger. Cube at one point could've claimed to be the Best Ever... not after releasing dreck like this.

    His delivery is crisp and uncomplicated, but razor sharp, like gangster haikus. [Jun 2006, p.159]

    Surprisingly, a middle-aged Cube still packs a youthful punch when it comes to the gangsta tales. [3 Jun 2006]
  3. Unlike his early classics, Laugh Now stumbles occasionally and fails to keep the momentum going through the whole fourth quarter.
