Ice Cube has finally unveiled the release date for his upcoming solo album, Everythang’s Corrupt. According to a tweet from the gangsta rap O.G., the long-awaited project is expected to arrive on December 7.
“December 7, 2018. A day that will live in Infamy,” he wrote.
December 7, of course, is the same day as the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Cube apparently believes his album release date will be just as impactful.
Everythang’s Corrupt will mark Cube’s first album since 2010’s I Am The West. He intended to release the project years ago but was too buried in his work as an actor and a co-owner of BIG3 basketball league.
But alas, the wait is almost over.

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.
