Profile (courtesy of Wikipedia):

“Death Certificate is the second studio album by American rapper Ice Cube, released on October 29, 1991 by Priority Records. Highly anticipated with over one million advanced orders, the album was certified platinum in sales on December 20, 1991. Due to some of its racially and politically charged content, and Ice Cube’s acerbic statements on drug dealing, racial profiling, and the right to keep and bear arms, Death Certificate was the source of much controversy upon its release. In 2003, Priority Records re-released Death Certificate with the bonus track “How to Survive in South Central”, which originally appeared on the Boyz n the Hood soundtrack.
