     Ice Cube says that "I Am The West," at least that is the title of his new album, which hits stores on April 22nd. Ice Cube recently talked about some of his songs like "Man vs Machine" and "Hood Robbin." "['Man Vs. Machine'] is talking about our obsessions with machinery and how it's taking over," he said in an interview. "Automation is taking over human beings in all our relevancy in this world. Pretty soon, machines are gonna take over and that's just real…['Hood Robbin'] is talking about how big corporations is now stealing from the poor and giving to the rich. It's a whole thing about the things we're going up against with housing and medical insurance … just everything people are going through. Real sh** that ain't got nothing to do with money, cars, [and] all the sh** most rappers talk about."
