The early reviews of SchoolBoy Q’s new album Blankface are overwhelmingly positive, but some are taking exception to some lyrics on a remix of “That Part.”
On the song, the rapper castigates the people that filmed the death of Alton Sterling, who was killed executioner-style by Baton Rogue police.
“THat Part (Remix)”:
“Gangbangin’ like we stand for somethin’
When Alton Sterling gettin’ k!lled for nothin’
Two cowards in the car, they’re just there to film
Sayin’ #BlackLivesMatter should’ve died with him
Wrong ngga in your hood, you gon’ ride on him
White ngga with a badge, you gon’ let that slide?
Tell me how they sent that footage off and slept that night”
The lyric offers another side that video taping brutality, which has been exposed through the advent of technology.
Aside, Q’s album is out and has and impressive roster of artists like Jadakiss, Kanye West, E-40, Tha Dogg Pound, Vince Staples and others like TDE’s SZA.
