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

    sunsets in reality and thier beautiful
    God comes in to take the man/child
    angels sing in the background
    and the whole thing is wild

    angels take his body and gently place it
    in Gods arms for Him to take him home
    gently softly he arrives
    and he is happy that he is home

    singing with the angels now
    sunsets arrive and burst
    for the gentle giants home
    and he is at peace and that is a first

    Rest In Peace Michael stay as beautiful as you are !!!!!!!!!!!

    Before I start I will make one promise to you.
    There will be no lies or mixups over the issues.
    I want to get this all out, for you to read.
    I swear on my life this just came from me.
    But that is not at all what I am presenting to you.
    The question seems to be where we came from.
    That is not really hard to figure out, Its Atoms and Evolution.
    On that it is hard not to disagree.
    Their is proof, of course, me and you both seen it.
    But that can't be the end of it. No I won't leave you hangin
    here it goes are you ready.
    Where did it all start?
    Yea atoms and evolution,, but scientist don't know where
    Ok we started froma bunchs of matter, then monkeys and people.but
    the heart did just start beating somehow.
    Say you had to come up with a answer.
    what could you possibly say,atoms had to come from somewhere
    it possibly be. this next part,I am not sure If it really will
    provide you any more answers.
    How do i just come out and explain my awnser to everyhing.
    I believe If I listen real close. to my heart beating.
    I can make it go louder!
    Now I am starting to feel the power.
    Is it just a chemical reaction? or is it,what, possibly god?
    Did that get you upset? Take a good look at, what your hearing.
    something is definetly happening.
    Lets see if i can get your heart beating faster? Or is it even me
    Listen close for it to start beating. Can it go faster
    What causes that in you, to continue.
    Rember i am just putting these words out there.
    Rember you are the one who is all alone.
    Hearing it beat faster, in the anticipaion, of what comes after this,
    harder and harder it becomes it is getting like a drum. don't
    forget to breath no can you can't run away stay here. Still hear what
    is it doing. Is it even beating.
    swear i am not causing this, it is just words, I was just sent to tell you the truth.
    I am just saying, what made it this way. I haven't even said nothing but you are hearing it.
    Its loud can you make it stop. now breath, can you even hear me, cause you need to listen close
    to even stay with me. The harder it beats I know i shake forgetting to stop
    to take my break. My hands begin to shake. I got to ask what is the matter?
    I mean really what is happening, now I apogize! for that pain you are feelin,
    but I am sorry I am not even doing it.
    You got to rember, I am not the one, who made it this way.It was, only a question?
    Can you control it. or did it slow down?
    Or do you need him too, slow it all down,Are you even sure, you want it all to stop,
    if so, all you have to do, is ask him. My mission, was not to hurt you.
    I am just a messanger, who was sent to give this, question to you.
    I didn't come up with this alone, i swear, someone helped me, but i didn't see anyone there
    now you got me upset! I ask you why, people please come up with a better awnser.
    If you do, will you let me know, I hate to think , what will happen at the end of our show.
    If he comes, It will be surely,be great, only if, you properly got, the message.
    Get tears in my eye.Not sure what to think now. what did, make this, happen now.
    Sure, there has to be a, good reason. For me and you.
    So i don't know what happens next, but i would not want to be on, his "bad" side.
    . But I was not sent hurt in any way. I just came with the one question.
    Now I say, did that really just hurt? Because I can promise. It came straight from the heart.
    The years are rolling by, and I can't make them stop. Will you please help me, and pass this along.
    For, I would hate something to happen. What you believe from now on will be our little secret.
    I won't tell anyone about all that happened. But just rember, I think There was, that one person.
    Now really, I am just a man, that is far, far away from you, so how did this get to you.
    You were all by yourself, and on the other side of the earth. Probably the only one, in the room.
    Why did it have to be this way, you might ask, Its just like i told you it before only facts are allowed!
    or how come all this got to you. I am sure far, far, away from you. What can you say caused that. Let me see a monkey try that.
    Now for the end, it is comeing close, this was a very long journey!
    But if you rember, so was Jesus's.
    Now you will go your way and I will go mine, I have to say it was a good time, but honestly, we are running out of time.
