According to Amazon, the CD was due for release this summer but has been postponed until the end of September. I Am The West, which will be released on Ice Cube's own Lench Mob Records label, is the rapper's first album in two years.
Ice Cube said: "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."
Ice Cube said that the record will contain production from Dr. Dre.
