Nasty C, a South African rapper, and T.I, an American singer, have joined forces to put out a new single that addresses police brutality and racism against black people.
The song entitled ‘They Don’t’ was released on Friday, amid ongoing protest over the death of George Floyd, a black American who died after a white policeman knelt on his neck.
It sees T.I address the flaws in the United States’ criminal justice system with regard to the black community while asking, “How you supposed to serve and protect with your knee on my neck?
“2020, guess it’s the year of the burn, consequences you earned. To build this nation that you hate me in, the karma’s returned. Well, that’s a stupid question, when will you learn?
“You never will, word to George Floyd, Emmett Till, and Sean Bell. Guess they’d rather see us all in civil unrest/ Than to go and make some fuckin’ arrests, fuck is that?.”
Taking his turn, Nasty C, whose real name is David Junior Ngcobo, makes a lot of references to God while mentioning that he can only pray for the world to get better as he raps his verses.
“I can only imagine the pain and the grief/from the innocent mothers with all the shit they had to see. when you lose the ones you love to the fuckin’ police. It cuts deep,” the rapper chipped in.
“When you lose the ones you love to the fuckin’ police, it cuts deep. When Heaven calls and the angels do their job. We start to question God like we could play His part.”
