Ice Cube Speaks On New Album ‘Everything’s Corrupt’
Ice Cube is currently finishing work on his 10th studio album, Everything’s Corrupt. He sat down with XXL and revealed that the album is 70% done.
Speaking on the album title he says it’s, “kinda self-explanatory in a lot of ways. It’s everywhere we look, it’s just like corruption has seeped in,” he says. “It’s a shame, but it’s true. This whole world is about the almighty dollar. The record is really just really speaking on that. There’s a title track that really goes into it. The record is just that West Coast hardcore hip-hop; it’s really what fans of mine have kinda been accustomed to, so I ain’t about to change.”
The West Coast O.G. also broke down several songs on the project.
“I gotta track called, ‘Dominate The Weak,’ talking about people that fall asleep and become sheep are usually dominated and we can’t do that,” Cube said. “I gotta song called, ‘One For The Money,’ which is really talking about how it used to be ‘One for the money, two for the show…’ Now, it’s one for the money, two for the money. The record is talking about where everybody head’s at right now.”
“I gotta record called ‘Take What We Want’ and that’s about being confident about whatever you want and not waiting for someone to give it to you. Just take it,” Cube continued.
Ice Cube will announce a release date for the album next week.
