West Coast veteran Ice Cube released a new track, Only One Me, that will be featured on his 25th anniversary reissue of Death Certificate. The reissue of Cube‘s 1991 classic will include three new songs in total, Only One Me, Dominate The Weak and dark lead single, Good Cop, Bad Cop. In Only One Me Cube claims the top 3 MC spot:

Taught Tupac how to keep it gangsta
I showed Biggie Smalls how to release his anger
Who did it before me?
Melle Mel, Ice-T, King T, KRS, and the homie Chuck D, P.E., D.M.C.
Nigga, know your history
If Cube ain’t Top 3, then you’s a bitch to me

Death Certificate was originally recorded in the aftermath of the Rodney King case that incited the Los Angeles riots. Ice Cube designed the album to reflect that “state of emergency,” as he said, and organized the 20 songs into two groups. “The Death Side is a mirror image of where we are today,” while “The Life Side represents a vision of where we need to go.”
