War & Peace Volume 2 (The Peace Disc) is the sixth studio album by American rapper Ice Cube, released March 21, 2000 on Priority Records. It is the second part from the two-album project War & Peace; the previous volume, War & Peace Vol. 1 (The War Disc) was released in 1998. War & Peace Vol. 2 (The Peace Disc) peaked at number 3 on the Billboard 200 and at number 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, selling 188,000 copies in its first week of release.

The album starts off with "Hello" which features former N.W.A bandmates Dr. Dre and MC Ren. The club song "You Can Do It" which then later, re-released in 2004 was a UK #2 for Cube.

The album's promotion was poor and other new artists such as Eminem and Dr. Dre's 2001 were on top of the charts. This was Ice Cube's final album under Priority Records. It took six years for Ice Cube to release his next album, Laugh Now, Cry Later.
