One of 3 bonus tracks from the 25th Anniversary edition of the “Death Certificate” album (Almost 26 actually, as it was originally released on October 29th 1991), “Good Cop Bad Cop” is the first visual release. It’s classic Cube at his best, raging against the powers that be.

Stik Figa – Holding Back Tears

Central Standard Time
Mello Music Group
Directed by: Morgan Cooper

Artist’s track description:
“Holding Back Tears” is a song I wrote as a way to deal with the emotions of loss in the context of my personal experiences as a black man in America. The constant push and pull of what is considered acceptable versus how I feel, and making the right choices for my survival and being able to keep my conscious intact. I’m sure many can relate, so, I thought I would share, and be transparent about it all.”

“I couldn’t even cry, all I wanted was revenge. Some wounds never heal, even time couldn’t fix.”
(Stik Figa)

I reviewed the album that this visual is taken from “Lord Jessiah presents: Grounds Of Detroit 2: The Wrath Of God” earlier this year. Here’s what I had to say about this particular track:

“Cold Dishes” are served with Drugs TheEmCee & Venus Sky. The debut single off this album comes across as being the follow up to the story in “No Friend Of Ours”. I may be wrong, but it certainly gives that impression. After all the album is entitled the “Wrath Of God” & every rapper sounds mad vexed!!! What I can confirm is that it’s my standout track on the album. The production is fiyah!

Now we’ve been blessed with a visual for “Cold Dishes”. In simple terms it’s ruff. rugged & raw. Nuff said. Watch & enjoy.

Peace.
