Rapper Ice Cube has laughed off reports of a serious rift between the members of WESTSIDE CONNECTION, claiming the trio are planning to tour later this year (04).

Reports of friction have been rife ever since Cube and cohorts MACK 10 and WC released TERRORIST THREATS last year (03), but Cube insists nothing is further from the truth.

He says, "We think about puttin' tours together whenever time permits. My movie schedule is crazy. I don't want to run myself too hard, so we still tryin' to figure it out."

Cube also reveals stories about him ditching the chance to reteam with NWA founder Dr Dre in the studio are untrue - he's still keen to sign to Dre's AFTERMATH label and record an album with his mentor, but business deals are making the collaboration a difficult one to plan.
