2016 has been a tumultuous year with many black lives lost at the hands of police. Z-Ro took the time to address the dire situation facing black citizens on his new track "Skrewed Up."

"The devil is a lie, somebody already told you that/Black lives don't matter, that law already showed you that/War time, I be where the rest of the other soldiers at/Whenever we open a door, they close it back," Z-Ro raps.

"Skrewed Up" will appear on Z-Ro's upcoming album Legendary, which is scheduled to drop this Friday (Nov. 11). The Mo City Don hopes the LP will get the attention it deserves.

"I got a lot of projects. But after you’ve been where I’ve been. I’ve turned in great bodies of work [but] when muthafuckas take it and leave it [on the shelf], I don’t like that shit," Z-Ro told XXL. "So pretty soon I’m finna to stop giving you shit that you’re going to leave right there and nobody going to know about. I’ve done, in my opinion and plenty of others, some masterpieces and them shits don’t get out of Houston."
