Dr. Dre Misses Chance To Be on Cube’s “I AM THE WEST” Album

Dr. Dre Misses Deadline To Be On New Ice Cube Album

Hip hop OG Ice Cube’s ninth studio album I AM THE WEST is nearly finished, but according to the gangsta rap veteran, the western union that was to be, with his former N.W.A. member Dr. Dre, will no longer happen.

Reporting via his blog, Cube stated that the good Doc’s reclusion was the reason he missed the bus to be on the project, scheduled for release September 28.

“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. 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 sh*t in by Aug. 20th to make street date…Sept 28th. I’ll keep you posted if anythang new develops.”

Despite the absence of Dre, the album will have production from west side vets, DJ Quick, E-A-Ski and Sir Jinx. Cube is also starring in the comedy film, Lottery Ticket, alongside Bow Wow, Mike Epps, Naturi Naughton and Teairra Mari, in theatres August 20.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
