Shortly after the massive global uprisings began, YG would release his anti-police brutality single “FTP.” The rapper would then take to one of the many Los Angeles-based protests to shoot a video for it (with some criticizing him about that, however).
The video has now been released.
“You gotta understand that a lot of people out there they see me as a n***a,” YG said about the track/video. “They don’t see the Black proud man. They see a kid from Bompton and they expect violence. They hear ‘FTP’ and they think I’m gonna come and burn my city. So we showed up and did it right. We proved them wrong. The real story here is me and Black Lives Matter brought out 50,000 people today to peacefully protest and unite for change…. That is history. That is breaking down these stereotypes on our people and our neighborhoods.”
