In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio, Ice Cube talked about his newest song, “Good Cop Bad Cop.” “The same weight under a Trump Administration is starting to feel the same way as it did when daddy Bush was int he White House. It was the weight of all those policies geared against poor people who were trying to pull themselves up. I feel like that same attack is happening against the most poor and vulnerable people. That same ugliness is starting to rear its head again,” Ice Cube said. Thus, the birth of the track.
“Good Cop Bad Cop” is very similar to his former hit with N.W.A., “F*ck Tha Police,” as it discusses police brutality against people of color. The West Coast legend raps, “Robots, can’t give a damn who the f*ck’s shot/ Clean cop, clean cop, f*cking with that dirty cop/ Don’ act like yo ass never heard of that/ Clean cop, Clean cop, rollin’ with that mean cop.” Despite controversy over Bill Maher’s use of the n-word, Ice Cube is still joining him on his show this Friday. #TheCruzShow will also have that same day.
