Ice Cube Announces First Solo Album In Five Years, ‘Man Down’

Ice Cube is gearing up to drop his new record — his first solo LP since 2018’s Everythang’s Corrupt.

During a conversation with Chuck D’s RAPstation, the California native revealed that he’s adding the finishing touches to his next album and that it will be ready for release very soon.

“I’m working on an album that hopefully I can finish in next couple of weeks and schedule to put it out,” he said. “I’m digging what I’m doing. The name of the record is called Man Down, and, you know, it’s a pretty good record. It like it. It’s dope.”

He also took the opportunity to reflect on his career and how it has shaped the person he is today: “It’s a blessing, really. For one, I made a promise to myself when I got in this business that I wouldn’t let it change who I am as a person, so I was always willing to let the chips fall where they may and not worry about ‘I can’t do this or my career will be over’ or ‘if I do this, will this happen?’

“When you broke when you’re starting off, going back to being broke is not an issue. That’s not motivation, like ‘I’m going to be broke again, let me bow down to this bullshit.’ No.”

Ice Cube’s legendary career has had its fair share of contentious moments, but he has softened up with age and changed his tone as he eases into his veteran years.

Last month, he gave Common his flowers and shared that prior to their beef, the latter came to his aid and somewhat welcomed him with open arms.

In a late-August interview with Fake Shore Drive’s Andrew Barber for a new White Sox documentary, Cube discussed his first-ever show in Chitown, which included a run-in with the Like Water For Chocolate rapper.

“Love Chicago. My first show — my first big show outside of L.A. was at the Regal Theater in Chicago. We forgot our record. We forgot one of our records that we were performing,” he explained. “Guess who took me to the record store to buy the record? I had to go buy our own record. It was Common.”

He continued: “He was opening up for us. I mean, we didn’t really know who he was and you know that’s just ya know one of those footnotes. Chicago has always welcomed us before the rest of the country. It was Chicago.”
