No stranger to socially or politically charged music, Juicy J has now joined in the current fight against racism and police brutality with his latest single “Hella F***in’ Trauma.” The self-produced cut sees the Memphis hip hop legend speaking out against the heinous things taking place in our respective communities:

“Man, that s*** ain’t right, I know my rights, enough is enough, I can’t sit back, let ‘em take my life, enough is enough/

All this racist s*** gon’ f*** around and make me send it up, they keep killin’ all these n***as, man, a ride ain’t enough/

I just drank a Corona, is it a virus or what? They been lynchin’ s*** for hundred years, we still endin’ up/

Crisis actors right before my eyes, I know they tellin’ lies, Marshall Law, f*** you thought, that’s the police is disguise/

I don’t need no reparations, b***h, just gimme back what’s mine, you know I keep the peace, but the peace is a nine.../”

With some assistance from filmmaker Brandon Juliano, Juicy J also created a matching visual that showcases some of the song’s lyrics interspersed with footage of various protests and riots that have taken place over the past couple of weeks.

Previously, Juicy J connected with Young Dolph for his Megan Thee Stallion collaboration “RNB.” He also partnered with IDK for the DMV posse cut “495,” which also saw assistance from YungManny, Rico Nasty, Big Flock, Big Jam, and Backyard Band’s Weensey. That track was created for Kevin Durant’s recent basketball documentary Basketball County: In The Water.

Turn up music aside, Juicy J has also become more socially aware in the wake of Juice WRLD’s untimely passing, taking to social media to apologize for his past promotion of drug use:

“If I inspired anybody to do drugs I apologize”
