Iverson's CD won't be out soon
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Allen Iverson's controversial rap CD won't be out anytime soon, two sources familiar with the record company's plans told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
The sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Universal Records has pushed the release date of Iverson's debut album to late this year or early next year because the Philadelphia 76ers' star hasn't finished recording all the songs.
The delay has nothing to do with Iverson changing some of the lyrics, one of the sources said.
Iverson drew criticism from several civil rights groups and was reprimanded by NBA commissioner David Stern for repeatedly using offensive lyrics in "40 Bars," the debut single released in October.
Stern called some of the lyrics "coarse, offensive and anti-social." After a meeting with the commissioner during the preseason, Iverson said he'd take steps to eliminate the most offensive words from the final version of his album.
"I can assure you that there won't be any gay-bashing or any women-bashing in the album," Iverson said.
But Iverson later said he isn't changing any of the lyrics.
Iverson could not be reached for comment Tuesday. His agent, Larry Woodward, did not return phone messages. The 76ers referred all inquiries to the record company.
The CD originally was to be released around the All-Star game in February. Then, it was pushed back to after the season. On June 15, the Los Angeles Lakers beat Philadelphia for their second straight NBA championship.
Iverson, heavily criticized for his behavior on and off the court throughout his career, turned his image around with a remarkable season.
He was league MVP, captured his second scoring title in three years, was MVP of the All-Star game and led the Sixers to the finals for the first time since 1982-83.
