What Up Fam

What up Fam,

This ya homie Ice Cube and this is my first blog on my website. We had to change website companies a few months back, and now I think we've worked out most of the kinks. You'll be able to see and hear about what's going on with me, my career and life "straight from the horse's mouth." I don't and will never have anyone blogging for me on this page.

I want to start off by saying, "Thank You!" for all your support over the years. I'm still here fighting the good fight. I don't plan on stopping no time soon. I always trip off artist who say they're going to retire. Retire? And do what? Go fishing? Fuck that. Right now I'm working on my next record, or CD if you 90's or download if you're 2010. I haven't decided on a title yet, but you'll be the first to know if you keep checkin' in on me. "Laugh Now, Cry Later" was my return record. "Raw Footage" was my street knowledge record and this new one is just a banger. I did a song the other day called "Drink the Kool-Aid"...sick lyrics if I do say so myself. Leaking songs all year, droppin' this summer.

Also working on a ESPN 30 for 30 documentary called "Straight Outta L.A." It's about how the Raiders influenced West Coast hip-hop and how West Coast hip-hop influenced the Raiders. The Raiders called L.A. home from 1982 to 1994 and the world would never be the same. Air date is sometimes in May.

Alot of ya'll wanna know why "The Janky Promoters" went straight to video. Dimension Films didn't have the money to promote the movie right and they didn't give me the chance to promote it myself. They just threw it out there "unfinished" for a quick advancement from Blockbuster Video. Hollywood is as janky as Russell Redds and Jellyroll sometimes. Me and Mike Epps took our own money and finished the movie...and you can see and buy our version, with the soundtrack and a t-shirt.

Anything you need to ask me regarding me, my career or this crazy world we living in. This is the place to do it. Hit me up anytime. Working on my next blog as we speak.

Stay up,
Ice Cube

    What's up, Cube! Got a couple of questions for ya.
    1. When is WC dropping Return of the Barracuda?
    2. When is Toones dropping It's a Demo?
    3. Besides Hallway, whose producing on your new record?
    4. How far into the recording process are you?
    5. Can you press up some Lench Mob Records logo tshirts and sell em in your merch store?
    6. Raw Footage had some of your best work to date with Hood Mentality, GRMMDI, Why Me? and Stand Tall. Can the fans expect more of these records on the new release?

    Peace Cube. Keep dropping those knowledge-based records. They hold up far better than most of the other shit that's out there.

    Hello Ice Cube. I think you are wonderful at whatever you do. I enjoy your talent and I wish you the best in life. I have a question for you: what helps to keep your soul at peace?? I mean it seems like you have always been on top of your game. I just want to know what keeps you grounded and in tune with out hindering your outcome?? I just really dig your mindset. So maybe if you get a chance you could send me a reply. Well until then.....stay sweet, be safe and get that money!!!~~~~~
