Yesterday, Ice Cube announced that he signed a record deal with Interscope records. The first project to come from this new relationship is a special 25th-year-anniversary edition of his classic second album, Death Certificate.

This album, which drops on June 9th, will be a double LP album that will feature three new songs. Those songs are “Only One Me,” which will be available on June 2nd, “Dominate the Weak,” and “Good Cop, Bad Cop.” On June 2nd the album becomes available for pre-order.

Released in 1991, Death Certificate is still considered by many to be one of the greatest rap albums of all time. It was also one of the most ruthless, an album that gave an unflinchingly accurate portrayal of the tension in LA prior to the Rodney King riots.

Speaking about the album and its legacy, Cube put out a statement speaking:

“Sadly, our community is dealing with many of the same issues. I only hope that young millennials feeling powerless in the ‘hood can channel their own anger and frustration by listening to this record.”

Here is the official tracklist of the album:
