The legendary west coast native wordsmith, Ice Cube is back. After announcing to the world that Friday would be returning soon, Ice Cube is back today with a solid new track called “Only One Me.” The track is the lead single from the upcoming 25th-anniversary edition of his Death Certificate classic. He takes to the infectious instrumental and reflects on his impressive career and opens up about rappers that he’s inspired and the ones that influenced his rise.
Cube raps “Taught Tupac how to keep it, gangsta,” he raps. “Showed Biggie Smalls how to release his anger / Who came before me? Melle Mel, Ice-T / King T, KRS, and the homie Chuck D / P.E., DMC, ni**a, know your history / If Cube ain’t top 3, then you’s a bitch to me.” The track is certainly nothing to sleep on and is one of three new songs made for Death Certificate: 25th Anniversary. Check out the new track in the stream below and speak your thoughts on it after the jump. Look for the Death Certificate: 25th Anniversary project to drop June 9th.
