Lethal Injection is the fourth studio album by American rapper Ice Cube, released in 1993 on Priority Records. Similar to his previous albums, it was a commercial hit, debuting at #5 on the Billboard 200 with 215,000 copies sold in its first week. However, it was heavily criticised for what many saw as Ice Cube utilising the typical styles of gangsta rap, and toning down the socio-political and controversial content found on his earlier efforts. The album includes the popular singles "You Know How We Do It", and "Bop Gun (One Nation)", which features Parliament-Funkadelic leader George Clinton and became a staple on MTV.
