Pretty soon you’ll be seeing each of them with one hand raised and their middle fingers twisted around their ring fingers — Ice Cube, Mack 10 and WC are ready to ride as Westside Connection again.
The three put out the song “It’s the Holidaze” last year and “Lights Out” this year, and they’ve consistently appeared on each other’s solo projects and have even toured together, but only recently did they officially reform to record a follow-up to 1996’s Bow Down. According to their spokesperson, Cube, Mack and Dub C are already eight songs deep into the recording process for what they’re calling Terrorist Threat, expected out in October.
Cube’s lyrical hoo-banging with his Cali brethren won’t be his only focus this summer. Aside from his own solo album that he’s been working on with Dr. Dre, the frosty filmmaker has signed on for “Barbershop 2” and begins shooting the sequel next month in Chicago, according to his spokesperson.
Cube has an abundance of other movie projects forthcoming, but the next time we’ll see him on the silver screen will be in January, when his bike thriller, “Torque,” opens.
