The long-awaited collaboration between Dr. Dre and Ice Cube may still happen, it just won’t be on Cube’s upcoming I Am The West album. Ice Cube updated his blog over the weekend, writing that the Dr. Dre-assisted song he hinted at back in April, was not going to happen.

“Many asked about Dr. Dre working on my album,” Ice Cube wrote. “Negative, Dre has been M.I.A. for a few months now. I asked Snoop has he heard from him and he said, no. I can’t wait. I gotta turn my shit in by Aug. 20th to make street date…Sept 28th. I’ll keep you posted if anythang new develops.”

Ice Cube is also promoting the single, “Drink The Kool Aid,” which originally caused people to question if he was taking shots at Dre and Eminem. Dre’s supposed absence could also mean he’s working on the long-delayed Detox album again. When Cube blogged about working with Dre in April he wrote that he and Dre also talked about the possibility of Ice Cube being involved with Detox in some capacity.
