It is the first part from the two-album project War & Peace, the subsequent volume, War & Peace Vol. 2 (The Peace Disc) was released in 2000. The album features production by Bud'da, E-A-Ski, Ice Cube, K-Mac, N.O. Joe and T-Mix. It moves from intense street-oriented jams to rap-metal fusions, such as the Korn featured song "Fuck Dying", to social commentary such as "Ghetto Vet." The album was Cube's first album in five years since his last album, Lethal Injection, while he was working on other projects. The album debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 180,000 copies in the first week.[7]
