West coast rap legend Ice Cube will release a new album later this year, but his former NWA partner, Dr Dre will not be featured on in. Cube took to his blog to let fans know that his new album, ‘I Am The West’ will be in stores by the end of September and explained that Dre’s not featured on the album, as he hadn’t seen or heard from him in months:
“What up Fam?
I’m almost done with my record, I AM THE WEST. I’ve been mixing songs and dealing with paperwork all week and I’m down to my last 4 songs to mix. It’s bangin’. I think we’ll end up wit about 15 songs when it’s all said and done and I’m real happy wit it.
As a matter of fact, I’m in the Lench Mob Studios writing this blog right now. I’m going to Philly in the morning to promote Lottery Ticket. I get alot of love in Philly…Go Mike Vick!
Many asked about Dr. Dre working on my album. Negative, Dre has been M.I.A. for a few months now. I asked Snoop has he heard from him and he said, no. I can’t wait. I gotta turn my shit in by Aug. 20th to make street date…Sept 28th. I’ll keep you posted if anythang new develops.
Oh, I did Jimmy Kimmel again and Jamie Foxx radio show. Both were fun, but Jamie’s shit was off the chain.
Keep it Gangsta,
Dre’s been working on his comeback album ‘Detox,’ for what seems like ten years now. And by the sounds of things, it’s probably unlikely that it’ll be out this year.
