Back in May, legendary west coast rapper Ice Cube announced his new album, Everything Is Corrupt, and explained that he’s going stick to the formula and give people what they want, that hardcore west coast Hip Hop. Now Cube gives an update on his forthcoming album, and also speaks on the next Friday movie.

In a recent interview with Red Bull USA, Ice Cube speaks on Everything Is Corrupt, and says the album is 65% complete and will be released next year:

“I’m pretty deep into it, I’m about 65 percent finished with it. It’ll be out next year, you know, and it’s hardcore Hip Hop. It’s street knowledge, it’s talking about what’s going on in the hood, but it’s talking about what’s going on in the political arena. It’s what I always try to give. Much more than just rhyming. Mostly, it’s Hip Hop for the soul. That’s what I’m trying to deliver.”

As the interview continued, Cube speaks on the progress of the next Friday film:

“The script is almost finished, I got a meeting with New Line on Monday or Tuesday, to talk about the next step. You gotta get that script tight before you can take the next step.”

Cube also touches on the state of West Coast Hip Hop:

“It’s beautiful because the West Coast, we’ve always been trying to prove ourselves to the Hip Hop nation, that we was much more than bitches, hoes, gangstas, guns. We’ve been trying to show that we’re very creative on the West Coast, but we got caught in a style that worked, a formula that worked, and it kind of got oversaturated in a way. But the dudes on the West are showing how creative they are. It’s good that the hip Hop community is starting to acknowledge it and getting their shine, and that’s a beautiful thing.”
