The Lox’s New Album ‘Filthy America… It’s Beautiful’ Got Censored for Anti-Cop Lyrics
During the conversation, Styles P revealed that the physical copies of the album actually had to be pushed back because one of his lyrics needed censoring.
On the album opener "Omen," Styles raps, "pop a cop, nigga fuck an indictment," and though the lyric passed for the digital versions of the album, he apparently got "flagged" for the CD release. Peep Jada's face as P is saying this around the 21:15 mark; he can't believe it.
"The physical comes out the 23rd because I said a line that was offensive to the police," explains P. "I was being artistic and expressing myself. On 'Omen' I said, 'pop a cop' and I got flagged. I handed it in early and all that, they checked, everything was cool, and then it came back flagged."
The news comes after YG's latest album Still Brazy was censored by the CIA for the Compton rapper's fiery anti-Trump song "FDT." Though the song was released ahead of the album, certain lyrics had to be altered for the LP's official release.
Elsewhere in the interview the Lox talk about conversations with Hov, fighting with Trick Trick at a show and lots of other tales. Peep the whole discussion above and listen to "Omen" below.
