LA legend Ice Cube passes through Sway In The Morning and talks his first new solo studio album in eight years, the excellent 16–track Everythang’s Corrupt released on Lench Mob and Interscope Records last week. The 56-minute long release features notable collaborations with fellow West Coast legend Too $hort, producer DJ Pooh, Magnedo7, Fredwreck, Shameia Crawford plus more. The album’s controversial second single “Arrest The President” produced by ShawnSki was released early last month, before the most recent single “That New Funkadelic” produced by T-Mixx dropped earlier this month.
Previously to this project in 2017, Cube released a 25th Anniversary edition of his 1991 classic Death Certificate album which featured three new songs including “Only One Me,” “Dominate The Weak” and the also included “Good Cop, Bad Cop” that also featured in the first official trailer to the movie The Happytime Murders. While in the SiriusXM Shade 45 studio with Sway and Heather B, Ice Cube talks all things music business, politics, Hollywood and the recent Kevin Hart situation.
Ice Cube has kept extremely busy away from the microphone since 2010, acting and producing in numerous movies and TV shows including Are We There Yet?, 21 Jump Street, Ride Along, the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton and more. Early last year Ice Cube announced the beginnings of the BIG3 3-on-3 basketball league with longtime collaborator and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz that has proved to be highly successful already after only two seasons now broadcast on Fox.
Ice Cube last week dropped two live spoken word performance interpretations from his album on his Vevo YouTube Channel, “Fire Water” and “Chase Down The Bully,” showcasing his lyrical and rapping ability is still razor-sharp 25 years into the game since breaking through with his former C.I.A. group before the N.W.A legacy.
