YG and Nipsey Hussle performed the TV-friendly version of their call to action on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.
The Cali duo’s song is growing from an underground internet hit into perhaps the song that defines Hip-Hop’s stance on the 2016 Presidential election. Maybe even the new age rendition of Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power.”
From the song title to lyrics in it, the song is indeed a big middle finger to Trump, his supporters and all of the hate, fear and ignorance they wear on their sleeves. But the song is also one that is unifying Bloods and Crips on wax, embracing Mexicans and with the remix featuring Macklemore and G-Eazy, attempting to bring people from all races and backgrounds together.
Even with the lyrics and hook cleaned up to say “No Donald Trump,” the message still resonates.
