Not long after the release of his other new single “Only One Me,” Ice Cube is back with another incendiary track entitled “Good Cop Bad Cop.” Recalling his early days as part of the infamous rap group N.W.A., Cube spins the story about police officers and their inability to resist their happy trigger fingers, especially when it comes to dealing with people of a visible minority.

This song couldn’t have been dropped at a more appropriate time, with Cube set to take on Bill Maher on the latter’s show in a conversation about a certain racial epithet. The production is a throwback to Cube’s best sounding stuff from the 90’s and early 2000’s, demonstrating that he hasn’t lost a step in the years since.

Quotable Lyrics

Good cop, good cop
Riding with that bad cop
Whatcha’ doin’ boy?
Turn in that blood clock
