    What up fam? As you may or may not heard, my record "I AM THE WEST" will not be released on July 13th. I've been working my ass off trying to get it done for you but I ran out of time. The music is right but the paperwork isn't and since I'm working with a few new producers the contracts are taking a little longer then usual, so I missed my turn-in date. But it's cool. We're trying to project...

    What up fam? This is the Grand Wizard... My Japan trip would've been perfect if it was for the messed up sound in Fukuoka. For some reason the man on the sound board put a "gate" on my music (a gate keeps it from peaking) so it kept clipping. But me and WC got through it like the pros that we are. The rest of Japan was riped out the frame. Toyko is still smokin'. The Japanese keep it...

    What up fam? Alots been going on since my last blog. Shit been movin' so fast I didn't have the time to write a decent blog until now. I did Jimmy Kimmel. Flew on a red-eye to New York for the Tribeca Film Festival. Then back to L.A. to hit Power 106 with Big Boy. Later that night went back in the studio with Dre. Hit a Lakers Playoff game. Finished a few edits on my video and now I'm in...

    What up fam, I met Dr. Dre in the studio last night. When I got there Snoop was in the booth laying the finishing touches on another classic from the dynamic duo. He played me some tracks set for the up and coming Detox record and we talked about me jumping on board the project. Of course I talked about him doing shit on my record and he said he'd bless the album. The Game came through...

    What up fam, this ya big homie Cube. Last week went about as smooth as a baby's ass. We shot the video to my first single, "I Rep That West." Directed by this youngster from Memphis name Gaberial Hart. I'm sitting here waiting for my man Robert Redd to bring me the ruff cut as we speak. We shot the video all over L.A. From downtown to the beach. WC and Toones came through for cameos. I...

  6. July 13th

    Mark it on your calendar. July 13th is the date I'm droppin' my record, "I AM THE WEST." The buzz is already in the streets. The minute I named my record, producers start sending me tracks. I got music from DJ Quik, Sir Jinx, EA Ski, Bangledesh and a few unknowns that I fuck wit. I listen to beats and see if they call my name. See if a song or hook will just spill out. I stop forcing lyrics...

  7. I AM THE WEST (part 2)

    I knew, as soon as I named my record, I AM THE WEST… Suckas would come out the wood work and have something to say about it. First of all, it’s true. I am the west. I have a few O/G’s in hip-hop that I show respect to for help starting the West Coast movement. Like Ice-T, Dr. Dre, King Tee, DJ Pooh, DJ Quik, Too Short, MC Eiht and everybody from NWA of course. But the rest of these MC’s...

  8. I AM THE WEST

    I AM THE WEST...is the name of my new record. After completing about 65% of my music, this is the perfect title. This shit is cocky, no apologies, West Coast gangsta shit. I can't help it. That's what I do. June seems too tight for a release, but July is very doable. We'll see how things go. Now that I have my title, I can work on the concept of my photoshoot and artwork. I want to provide...

    What' up Fam, this is the voice of Cube As you know, the Super Bowl went my way. Congrats to New Orleans and the Saints. But we don't have a team in L.A. and the Raiders aren't in it, so my happiness wore off pretty quick. Went to see the Lakers beat the Spurs last week without Kobe. I also heard he wasn't playing in the All-Star game...Is it worth watching now? Maybe. Depends on what I'm...

  10. Superbowl Time

    What Up Fam, this is the voice of Cube. Who you got in the Super Bowl? I got the Saints by 3. New Orleans needs the win more then Indiana (birthplace of the Klan). If it wasn't for the Saints and Hornets New Orleans would be left for dead. I'mma check out the Bowl at the house with the family and friends this year. Not too many people over. I've been to 5 SuperBowls. Seen one, you've seen...
