YG has been all about the Pro-Black movement over the past couple of months- and within reason. The state that blacks and minorities are in is elongated by way of racism still very much present and pervasive in our world. It was an inevitability that Hip-Hop, a genre rooted in countering oppression and exploring Black pride, would contain artists who are intently vocal about matters such as these.
HOW THE FUCK THESE PEOPLE SAYIN BLACK LIVES MATTERS IS A RACIST MOVEMENT.
ALL WE SAYIN IS “YALL KEEP KILLIN US BLACKS LIKE WE DONT MATTER”
— YG (@YG) July 10, 2016
On his recent project, Still Brazy, YG further speaks on his distrust and distaste of a certain presidential candidate, whose arguably loose tongue has paved the way for the racist and ignorant hive minds to come out and showcase themselves. “FDT,” the 15th song on the track listing, opens up with a small speech:
“Just when I thought it wouldn’t get no sicker, woke up one morning and heard this weird ass mothaf**ka talkin’ out the side of his neck. Me and all my peoples, we always thought he was straight. Influential mothaf**ka when it came to the business. But now, since we know how you really feel, this how we feel”
Afterwards, the chorus begins, with simple lyrics and a simple message: “F**k Donald Trump.”
YG recently released the remix for the track, this time featuring G-Eazy and Macklemore. It’s a welcome treat to see artists who have been key in defining the “changing color of Hip-Hop” be more involved in the political stance the genre has to offer. G-Eazy comes through with bars jesting about the presidential candidate’s appearance and likening his presence to “Hitler in Berlin.”
“It’s off the top like the toupee on Donald Trump’s head”
Macklem0re, an artist who has multiple tracks under his belt concerning racism, comes in with bars about Trump’s policies and addressing the dichotomy between the negative perception of Muslims and the neutral one of caucasians.
“Your politics are like a Starburst pack…. nobody f**ks with the orange one.”
