Ice Cube chops it up with MTV about the absence of Dr. Dre on his upcoming album, I Am the West, dropping September 28th.
I didn’t get a chance to work with Dre on this record. He’s been M.I.A. for two to three months now. But I don’t feel bad, because Snoop can’t find him either. I think, really, it’s because people expect so much from him. People expect, when Dre does a record, it [will] change the trajectory of music. Not just be an album and it come out and be good. It has to come and take us in a different direction. And that’s a lot of pressure.
