Fans of the '90s West Coast rap group Westside Connection can expect the trio to stay disconnected for the time being. 

In a recent interview with Vibe magazine, the West Coast vet shared his feelings on a reunion with fellow group mates WC and Ice Cube.

“I haven’t spoke to Cube in a long time... like years,” Mack 10 told Vibe magazine. “I don’t know if we will ever speak again. I haven’t given it much thought. It’s all about Hoo Bangin’ now. Outside of that, I can’t really think about it. That’s the way you have to approach this business right now. This is not 1995 anymore.”

Mack recently released Money Music, a collaborative album, with Hoo Bangin/Cash Money signee Glasses Malone

In the interview, Mack 10 went on to share more about his main focus right now: his Hoo Bangin’ label has signed rapper/actor Xzibit.

“He does his acting thing but he can still rap his ass off,” said Mack. “He’s a real emcee...that’s why I signed him. He’s been working on his record. It’s probably going to come out in August.”

As previously reported, Mack 10 is still recovering from a stomach ailment that sent him to the hospital and resulted in surgery.
