War & Peace Volume 2 (The Peace Disc) is the sixth studio album by American rapper Ice Cube, released March 21, 2000 on his own label Lench Mob Records with distribution by 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 190,000 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.

Even with the success of Ice Cube's film Next Friday, the album's promotion was unsuccessful, and other new artists such as Eminem, Xzibit and Dr. Dre's 2001 were on top of the charts. This was Ice Cube's final album under Priority Records and his last until the release of Laugh Now, Cry Later in 2006. The album has been certified platinum.

Reception[edit]

The album debuted on #3 on the Billboard 200 with 1st week sales of 190,000 copies. It has since been certified Gold selling over 500,000 copies
