Dead Homiez

Dead Homiez

Ice Cube

“Dead Homiez” was released as the second single from the Kill at Will EP. Ice Cube pours out a little liquor with this somber ode to his friends that have passed on, and he provided background information about the track:

One of the homies in my neighborhood had got killed – a guy named T-Bone. Not the one from Lench Mob. T-Bone from Lench Mob was from another ‘hood, but he went to school with me. With the one who got killed, I was feeling real bad about it, because I was friends with his younger brother, Little T-Bone. It really messed me up, so I wrote the song that night. That song was easy to write just because it was so personal. I think I wrote it in about 90 minutes. I was already writin’ when I heard about his death, so I put what I had been writin’ down and went into that one.
