Ice Cube reached into his inner N.W.A. and released this politically charged song off his forthcoming studio album by the same name, Everythang’s Corrupt. The T.S. Pfeffer & Robert McHugh-directed clip has Ice Cube in a dark room throwing up recent news stories.
The legendary Ice Cube was a guest on Juan Epstein’s podcast premiere. Cube spoke about his N.W.A. break up, the production on AmeriKKKas Most Wanted, writing “Boyz N The Hood,” his feud with Eazy-E, “No Vaseline,” Eazy’s death, Jerry Heller, putting together the N.W.A. movie, his past beef with Common, the Boyz N The Hood movie and a ton more. Parts 2 & 3 of this must watch interview after the break.
Ice Cube became the latest rapper to appear on ESPN’s First Take. Stephen A. and Skip asked Cube about taking Andrew Bynum over Dwight Howard, Steve Nash’s addition to the Lakers, and the
Dippers Clippers competing against the Lakers.
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.
The only thing worse than a corny rapper is an underrated rapper. Given the root of anger doesn’t stem from the same tree, I still detest both type of rappers. It’s just frustrating when such a great rapper is over looked. When talking about ”underrated rappers,” five names come to mind. Unless you can read minds (don’t look above) and know who I’m talking about, hit the jump.
Yesterday, Ice Cube was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show on ABC. Cube spoke about his new movie 21 Jump Street, his sons rap career, playing the cop role in movies, and almost going to jail for performing “F*ck The Police.” Part deuce after the break.
Yaay, yaaaay! Ice Cube sat down with Sway and Devi Dev, and spoke about a variety of subjects including: the new Friday movie, an N.W.A. movie, his family, Amerikkkas Most Wanted, Boyz N The Hood, and why Dr. Dre hasn’t dropped Detox.
Blogxilla: Do you have a title for the upcoming “Friday” film you writing for?
Ice Cube: Yeah…”Last Friday“
Ice Cube might have crossed over to the cinema life in the past few years, but he will forever remain a Hip-Hop legend. But with the release of his new film, 21 Jump Street, Global Grind’s Blogxilla sat down with Mr. Cube and talked about his upcoming film, stereotypes, music, “Friday”, and much more.
21 Jump Street is in theaters March 16th.
