Mack 10 talked about his next solo album and the possibility of a Westside Connection reunion in an interview with the Murder Master Music Show. The West Coast rapper explained how the COVID-19 pandemic actually helped him focus on music, allowing him to record his first solo LP since 2009’s Soft White.
“With all the COVID stuff going on, it gave me time to get in the studio,” he said. “To be honest, my business was doing so well; I didn’t really have time. I stay busy. I didn’t really have time to concentrate on making an album. But all this quarantine stuff? Shit, you can’t do nothing but record and just kinda brush up on your craft a little bit. I took advantage of this time to finally get an album done. I’m almost finished. It’s called The Redprint.”
Later in the discussion, Mack was asked about what it will take to facilitate a Westside Connection reunion. The veteran MC noted he’s more than willing to reconnect with Ice Cube and WC for another LP but put the onus on Cube to make it happen.
“That’s the question of the year, bro!” he stated. “I don’t know, man. People asked me that and I really don’t know what it’ll take. I’m down, I’m sure Dub is down. Somebody probably gotta ask Cube what it’ll take because I really don’t know.”
He added, “[Fans] ask me in traffic and everywhere. Might be at the red light or something and somebody will recognize [me]. ‘Man, what’s up Mack? What’s it gonna take to get another Westside Connection album?’ And my answer is the same every day: I don’t know. I really don’t though.”
Westside Connection hasn’t released an album together since 2003’s Terrorist Threats. In April, Mack said he hasn’t spoken with Cube in 10-15 years.
