EVERYTHANGS CORRUPT street date: May 13, 2014.
— Ice Cube (@icecube) January 3, 2014
The upcoming album will be his first studio effort since his 2010’s “I Am the West”. Ahead of its May release, the rapper already released the rock-infused title track that featured Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello on guitar.
Cube said people shouldn’t judge the album entirely by its title. “It’s not a heavily political record, but it does have statement songs and rhymes,” he explained to The Huffington Post. “I got a song called ‘Dominate the Weak’, which is just showing you how a police state would look and feel.”
“But hip-hop is in a different space right now when it comes to that. You don’t want to overdo it when it comes to the political stuff.”
Aside from “Everythang’s Corrupt”, Cube also has two movie releases on his plate. He will play detective James in action comedy “Ride Along” with Kevin Hart, and he will reprise his role as Capt. Dickson in “22 Jump Street”.
