Ice Cube has set August 19th as the release day for his highly-anticipated album, Raw Footage, featuring the politically-charged track "Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It."

The former N.W.A. member's 8th studio album will feature collaborations with Young Jeezy--it was recently announced Cube and Jeezy would be partnering together for a movie, as well--The Game, WC, and Musiq Soulchild. The remix to "Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It" featured guest Scarface and Nas. Maestro (Lil Wayne), Da Beatsmith, and others contributed production to the project.

The album's first single, "Do Ya Thang," was recently released to radio and the video clip premiered today on the rapper's personal Web Site.

Cube is scheduled to hit the road later this month for an international promo run before returning to the states in August and September to tour.---LaTisha Robbins
