Ice Cube is back with another banger.

Today, Ice Cube released his new single, "Good Cop Bad Cop" which will be one of three new songs on the reissue of his 25th anniversary of his album, Death Certificate. The other two songs that will release on the reissue are "Only One Me" and "Dominate The Weak." The album will reissue on June 9th.

Ice Cube decided to talk about some of the issues in America on this track. He talks about the Black Lives Matter movement and the importance of education. He says, "Black Lives Matter, it's not chit chatter, 'cause all they wanna do is scatter brain matter. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. A nine is terrible in your face."

RollingStone reported that in an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple's Beats 1 Radio, Ice Cube introduced his single as "F**k the Police 2017." He went into more detail by saying, "We had done 'F**k tha Police' so many years ago. With the emergence of Straight Outta Compton the movie, we realized that it's still the same thing that's going on. We needed a more up-to-date version of the community talking to the police and the authorities."

The Los Angeles native doesn't plan on slowing down anytime soon. He is scheduled to appear on HBO's Real Talk With Bill Maher. He will be a mid-show interview guest. Detroit News reports that Ice Cube will talk about the reissue of his album while on the show. A representative for him stated, "Ice Cube will still appear on Bill Maher this Friday as scheduled to talk about the release of 'Death Certificate: 25th Anniversary edition,' an album that was recorded in the wake of the Rodney King beating in 1991, which sadly, speaks to many of the same race issues that we as a society are still dealing with today."
