Ty Dolla $ign Demands Change on Powerful New Song ‘You See It’

Ty Dolla $ign is turning to music to cope with trying times.

While some celebrities donate money to Black Lives Matter causes and others march in the streets to demand justice, the L.A. native has recorded a powerful song called “You See It,” dedicated to George Floyd and other black Americans who have lost their lives to police brutality and injustice.

“I know you see it / My people dying in the streets / They ain’t breathing,” sings Ty. “I know you heard about it / You know the issues, but the problems you ain’t speaking.”

He goes on to demand change before more lives are lost. “How many more of my brothers / Do I gotta lose till I see change?” he asks. “I know you see it, but we need change.”

He recorded the passionate track last night with Skrillex, Ant Clemons, and Nia Miranda. “Shits been happening for far too long now,” said Ty, who’s working on his new album Tyrone. “It’s time for change and we demand it !”

Earlier today, YG released his own protest anthem called “FTP (F**k the Police)” in response to the police brutality in America.

Vote today says Cardi B

The Observation

Recently, Cardi B weighed in on police brutality and protests going on all over the country. She took a moment to address what’s trending and explain why some demonstrations have turned violent.

“Seeing people looting and going extremely outraged it makes me feel like, ‘Yes. Finally! Finally, motherf*ckers is gonna hear us now! Yeah! And as much as people are so against it, at this point, I feel like I’m not against it even though it do scare me and I don’t want anybody to get hurt. It’s just really frustrating, you wanna know why? Because police brutality been going on way before I was born but it has been more visual ever since social media started getting popping. And ever since, let’s say since Instagram started, that’s just one app – how many peaceful protests have we seen? How many trending hashtags have we seen? These hashtags freaking keep repeating themselves. I feel like I’ve done videos against police brutality, I feel like this is my seventh time. I’ve been doing f*cking police brutality was f*cked up and the only sh*t that’s changed has been my f*cking teeth. So it’s like, people are tired.” -Cardi B’s Twitter

Cardi B speaks on a police brutality solution

Wait, There’s More

Instead of ending the discussion there, Cardi took things up another notch. B detailed the importance of using the power of voting to create a massive switch in law enforcement and the criminal justice system.

“Motherf*ckers are educated. Motherf*ckers could take the grown and adult way and act peaceful, people are tired of that. Now this is what people have to resort to. And another thing, I also want to say this, another way for people to take power, I don’t want to make everything political but it is what it is. It’s by voting. And when I say voting, I’m not only talking about the president. We can vote for mayors. We can vote for judges and we can also vote for district attorneys. Yes, we can vote for these people for our community. We sure can. The people who are voting for these people are most likely cops, most likely rednecks. That’s why every single time some f*ck sh*t like this happens, it goes to their favor because these people have the power. The judges, DAs, they have the power to prosecute these cops when they do f*ck sh*t.” -Cardi B’s Twitter

Before You Go

Last week, rap star Nas and vixen Tori Brixx reacted to protests turning violent across the country. The pair shared shots of both a car and building being set on fire.

Big Sean Speaks Out About Protests, Being Black in America

Big Sean is using his platform to demand justice and bring awareness to racism and police brutality in America.

The Detroit rapper took to social media on Monday night to address the Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd’s killing at the hands of a white police officer. In a post titled “From the heart,” Sean called for action and said things need to change before they can get better.

“Clearly, we got the whole world’s attention, obviously,” he said in his three-minute PSA. “And justice has to be served, period. And if it’s not, I don’t think things are going to change or get better.”

Sean, who is working on his album Detroit 2, reflected on his own experience protesting. “It’s been a lot of unity but I’ve also seen a lot of people with ulterior motives that look like undercover cops…starting a lot of the conflicts, a lot of the issues,” he said. “I don’t know if it’s to make us look like we wild beasts or don’t have control, but we clearly are not wild beasts. We’re extraordinary, talented, magical people that if you took us out of the equation, the world would be very, very bland.”

He went on to address the U.S.’s history of slavery and systemic oppression. “Our ancestors built this country for free, OK? So I’m just talking from the heart right now but one of my biggest issues is that…this current government and country, is built on a racist foundation. A lot of us know this. You want to talk about systemic oppression, you want to talk about the justice system being targeted to people that look like me.”

Added Sean, “And it’s impossible to get out of once you in there, you know?… Some of the first police forces ever was made during slavery, down South, in them Southern states. And their main focus was to capture, apprehend, beat, discipline slaves, rip them apart from their families, keep them apart and God knows whatever else.”

Sean also revealed what it’s like to be black in America. “So you want to talk about land of equality and freedom? I don’t feel equal and I don’t feel free,” he said. “Of course let’s speak up and be heard, but things have to change.”

He ended by encouraging everyone to remain strong and keep up the fight. “It feels like it’s a long road ahead of us so I’m just wishing to my sisters and brothers, again, so much strength, and to everyone supporting us, black lives matter, God bless you, and I’m so proud to be black.”

Yung Miami Shares Her Frustrations Regarding Protest Concerns

Since the beginning of the global protesting, following the death of Geroge Floyd. Celebrities have had mixed emotions on the state of America. Most celebrities have been doing their part in trying to support the Black Lives Matter movement, and other celebrities have addressed their concerns regarding the rioting and looting. Reality personality, Shekinah Jo received a lot of backlash after a teary-eyed rant on Instagram, concerning the looting of Gucci stores and other Atlanta businesses. Fans were concerned that Jo cared more about the major corporations rather than the countless amounts of Black lives lost to police brutality.

“Y’all done been in them folks’ store taking they sh-t. Them people got a family. That sh-t not right. They ain’t did nothing to you. Gucci ain’t did sh-t to y’all,” she said full of tears. “Y’all can say whatever y’all want to say. They racist, I don’t wanna hear none of that sh-t. They ain’t did sh-t to y’all. Saks ain’t did nothing to you. They ain’t did nothing to you. Lenox Mall ain’t did nothing to you.”

Following her cringy rant, Tory Lanez took to his Twitter account to express his thoughts after seeing the reality personality’s tearful rant. “WITH ALL THE THINGS GOING ON …. IM SEEING THIS LADY CRYING OVER THE GUCCI STORE BEING BROKEN INTO ?!!?? THE FUCKING GUCCI STORE SHORTY ??!?!??”

Tory and Shekinah went on instagram live to further discuss her concerns and come to a mutual understanding.

City Girls rap star, Yung Miami has seemed to join in on the conversation on her social media, after sharing her frustrations with people being more concerned about looting rather than the main issue at hand.

“Ppl laughing and taking this shit as a joke! Ppl so out of touch that it’s sad they don’t even give af about they own and always making excuses or trying to justify it. Ppl have a problem with ppl looting stores that don’t even want our money fr and follow us around the store as soon as we walk in and think you doing fraud when you paying with your credit card! STFU ITS BLACK LIVES!! That’s one of the biggest problems with black ppl we don’t know how to stick together as a whole it’s always somebody that’s gone say or do some dumb shit! This my last post I’m done!” she wrote on her Instagram.

YG Drops Protest Anthem ‘FTP (F**k the Police)’

As Black Lives Matter protests spread across the United States and the world, YG has released his own protest anthem.

On “FTP (F**k the Police),” the Compton rapper expresses his outrage over the police brutality in America and vows revenge. “F**k the police, that’s how I feel / Buy a glock, burn down the block, that’s how I feel,” he raps. “Murder after murder after all these years / Buy a strap, bust back after all these tears.”

He echoes the sentiments of millions across the nation in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and other black Americans at the hands of police officers. “It’s the Klu Klux cops / They on a mission / It’s the Klu Klux cops,” he repeats.

But he’s had enough of the injustice. “I’m tired of being tired of being tired / I’m tired of being shot at like an opp,” he raps. “Protect and serve mean duck and swerve.”

YG had planned a protest in Hollywood for Tuesday, but decided to put it on hold due to safety concerns. “I was told today that my protest was not safe and that people could get hurt or shot and I’m not trying to get none of my people hurt or shot so I’ma cancel today,” he told his followers.

He plans to reschedule it for another day in partnership with Black Lives Matter. “I’ma come back bigger and better and we gon’ do this shit the right way for the people, for the city, and for all the artists that wanna pop out and participate.”

YG has used his music to speak out against issues facing his community. In 2016, he took aim at Donald Trump on the politically-charged “FDT (F**k Donald Trump”),” which featured Nipsey Hussle.
