Rap icon Ice Cube has been forced to push back the release of his new album after missing an important deadline.
The former N.W.A. legend’s first CD in two years, I Am The West, was originally due for release this summer but the project has now been postponed after production overran.

He explains, “I’ve been working my a** 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.”

Ice Cube has yet to announce a new release date but reports suggest the disc will hit music retailers at the end of September.
