A few years ago hip-hop nerds created a flow chart of Ice Cube’s classic song, “It Was A Good Day.”

Plan Your Own Good Day In L.A.

Now one music fan has taken it one step further and figured out–based on the clues given in the song–the EXACT DATE that Ice Cube’s Good Day took place.

The genius who runs the  MurkAvenue Tumblr deciphered the dates, quotes and basketball schedules mentioned in the song to pin point which day in the 90s was Ice Cube’s Good Day. It’s all in fun of course but a great piece of detective work…

Funny enough, I had just been wondering which member of the New York Knicks Biggie Smalls would have hypothetically robbed on the fictional “A Story To Tell” from Life After Death. And when. I’ll share my findings on March 9th.
