Blogger Deciphers The Exact Date Ice Cube Rapped About In The Song "It Was A Good Day"

 

A blogger has done a lot of researching and believes he's solved the mystery of the date Ice Cube raps about in his song "It Was A Good Day."

 

Donovan Strain of the Murk Avenue blog used six clues that centered around the song's lyrics to come up with his conclusion.

 

From the lyrics, “went to short dogs house,they was watching Yo MTV RAPS” Strain knew it had to be between "Yo MTV Raps" first air date of August 6, 1988 and the release date of "Good Day" as a single on February 23, 1993.

 

Ice Cube mentions the Los Angeles Lakers beating the Seattle Super Sonics in the song and the day being without smog. Strain found 12 dates between August 6, 1988 and February 23, 1993 where the Lakers beat the Sonics. He then narrowed those down to four days that didn't have smog.

 

Got a beep from Kim, and she can f*ck all night," Cube rapped.

 

Beepers weren't available to the public until the 90's, leaving Strain with two possible dates, either January 18, 1991 or January 20, 1992. After finding out that Cube was busy filming the movie "Boyz in the Hood" from the middle of 1990 to early 1991, Strain found the date.

 

The ONLY day where:
Yo MTV Raps was on air
It was a clear and smogless day
Beepers were commercially sold
Lakers beat the SuperSonics
and Ice Cube had no events to attend was…
         
          JANUARY 20 1992


So there it is.
