Ice Cube checked in with fans on his official web site on Wednesday (February 24) with news about his upcoming ninth studio album. The 40-year-old rapper/actor writes:
‘I Am The West’ is the name of my new record. After completing about 65 percent of my music, this is the new perfect title. This sh** is cocky, no apologies, West Coast gangsta sh**. I can’t help it. That’s what I do… June seems too tight for a release, but July is very doable. We’ll see how things go. Now that I have my title, I can work on the concept of my photoshoot and artwork. I want to provide.
