Ice Cube Working On New Album, Preparing ‘XXX’

While Ice Cube is keeping busy in the film world, the acclaimed

writer/director/actor isn’t neglecting his rap career and recently divulged

details of a new album.

"I am planning to release the single by early summer " Ice Cube told

AllHipHop.com. “Once I put the finishes on it, I plan to drop the album

by late summer."

In addition to the album, Cube continues his foray into Hollywood and as previously

reported, is in negotiations to star in a remake of the 1948 comedy Mr.

Blandings Builds His Dream House.

“I don’t really want to disclose anything right now, I am really superstitious

and I want to wait until the deal is final, Cube said of the movie.

Cube’s superstitious aside, the rapper’s last project, Are

We There Yet grossed over $81 million dollars as of April 15th, while

his other films, such as the Barbershop and Friday

series of movies have grossed hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office

and through DVD sales.

Cube’s latest movie, XXX State of the Union, is the sequel

to the 2001 film XXX which starred action hero Vin Diesel.

Diesel and original director Rob Cohen opted out of the sequel, but stayed

on as executive producers.

Cube was selected as a replacement for Diesel since both have deals with the

studio, which produced the original version and the sequel.

“I am honored that they even considered me, to star in a film of this

caliber is definitely a dream come true,” Cube said of the action flick.

“If they decide to do a XXX 3 depending on how this does,

I am definitely interested in playing the part again."

XXX: State of the Union hits theaters worldwide April 29th.
