Ice Cube says his new song, “Good Cop Bad Cop,” is about America being filled with crooked cops targeting minorities, falsifying reports, planting evidence and doing anything they can do to send another black kid to jail.

In the song, Ice Cube raps, “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.” 

In a recent interview, Ice Cube described “Good Cop Bad Cop” as a sort-of “F—k tha Police 2017,” and explained why he decided to release the updated take on the song.

He said, “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 to the authorities.”  (Breitbart)
