West Coast icon Ice Cube dropped the new record “Trying To Maintain” on Friday, February 5, 2021. Produced by Hallway Productionz, the track is Cube’s first new solo music since 2018’s Everythang’s Corrupt.
While this is his first solo single he’s released since 2018, he has more new music on the way, with the collaborative Mt. Westmore group he formed with Snoop Dogg, Too $hort and E-40. They are expected to drop a new album this year.
Prior to releasing “Trying to Maintain”, Cube wanted to make sure people were clear by tweeting, “Clarity: New solo song… still finishing up that Mt. Westmore album.”
“To everybody tryin’ to maintain, with a little Mary Jane on the campaign, we buy you in the fast lane, only act like this ‘cause the black ain’t, fuck your cancel culture, bitch, you can’t cancel a soldier, quit/”
