    It's hard to believe that Ice Cube still makes music, since he started making family fare movies that belied his former gangsta rap persona. O'Shea Jackson certainly has come a long way since his N.W.A. and Boyz N the Hood days. The rapper revealed on his blog on Wednesday of last week that his new album I Am the West will not hit shelves on July 13 and has been pushed back.

    He wrote, "I've been working my ass off trying to get it done for you but I ran out of time. The music is right but the paperwork isn't and since I'm working with a few new producers the contracts are taking a little longer than usual, so I missed my turn-in date. But it's cool. We're trying to project a date when the business will be done and we can get this bomb-ass music out to you. In the meantime, I will release a song a month until the record drops. Hopefully that will wet your whistle until street date. I apologize to everybody who had that new Cube record 'taste in ya mouth.' It'll be worth the wait."

    Do you prefer Ice Cube's music or his movies? Are you looking forward to I Am the West?
