YG Mourns Police Brutality Victims on “One Time Comin”
YG stays using social and political current events to color his music, dropping a new track "One Time Comin'" on Tuesday (Oct. 25). As the cover art explains, the song is "in loving memory of the victims of police brutality," YG using racial profiling as the backdrop for the concept.
On the track, he raps, "Black man, black man, black man/They don't want us sellin' records, only want us sellin' crack man/But now I'm whoopin' ass and me and racist folks always clashin.'"
On the song's outro, he poses questions to the would-be officers that often take extreme force when dealing with members of the black community. "You think you hard with your badge huh?/Pop you a nigga, then you laugh, huh?/Think our life don't matter?/'Cause our family's scattered?," he raps.
The new track follows YG's "FDT" which features Nipsey Hussle and appeared on his June release Still Brazy. The anti-Donald Trump anthem reportedly caused the secret service to monitor YG, and at a recent show, he had his fans take swings at a Trump pinata. YG dropped a remix to the banger in July featuring Macklemore and G-Eazy.
YG recently reconnected with DJ Mustard, the two playing a pivotal role in each other's early careers. YG is featured on three songs from Mustard's recently released Cold Summer project, and the video for the track "Want Her" which features Quavo as well dropped earlier this month.
