After eight years, Ice Cube is finally coming back with a new solo album. On Thursday (September 20), the N.W.A legend revealed the cover art for Everythang’s Corrupt and teased a winter release date.
The cover art features a bloody hand wrapped around a stack of blood-splattered $100 bills.
The seasoned Hip Hop vet has been talking about this album for years but his crazy schedule got in the way.
“I had to put it down for a minute to finish these movies and make sure they were right,” he said in a 2016 interview. “To make sure Ride Along 2 was right, Barbershop and Straight Outta Compton – and this is going to be the end of it. I did a movie called Fist Fight. I just didn’t want to spread myself too thin. Finish these movies and finish this promotion and then finish the record and put it out.”
Back in June, Cube participated in a fan Q & A on Twitter and promised it was coming before 2018 was up.

Cube dropped I Am The West in 2010 but then got busy making millions as an actor and a business owner.
In January 2017, the ambitious gangsta rap pioneer kicked off the BIG3 basketball league and has continued going full steam ahead ever since.
