As we all continue to unite in the fight against racism and police brutality, Lil B steps to the forefront with his new single “I Am George Floyd,” which is produced by Uptown Greg and sees the Berkeley, CA rapper paying tribute to the song’s namesake and many others whose lives were lost at the hands of the police:

“Lavonte, he could’ve been my neighbor, I can’t breathe, will you watch when my life’s in danger?/

Just recording on the phone, show it off to strangers, on another note fuck breast cancer, fuck all cancer, no respect for the devil’s dances/

But we keep on dancing, moving in life’s patterns, wearing white clothes, God bless Nas’ mother/

I said we all coming home, God’s sons and God’s daughters, we all got a place, and if you feel forgotten, you got some space.../”

Lil B’s latest follows what became a heated back-and-forth with fellow Bay Area peer Guapdad 4000, which started after Lil B made a fairly controversial tweet which seemingly alluded to being jumped by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, PnB Rock and their respective crews during Rolling Loud in 2017:

“police ain’t never jumped me but blacks did... I’m not against blacks and Im not against police.. the pain comes from home starting with me, I’m angry at the world. Don’t be mad at ur family or urself and take it out on others if u mad at the system then change it”

Guapdad inquired about the statement and was met with “mind your business” in response, causing him to further question Lil B’s intentions:

“As hard as i got for you and say you influenced me ? That’s all you gotta say ? I got jumped by black people too ? Black people that work for a white man ? I’m not dragging them in this ? And if you tweet it .. it’s not just your business anymore ? Fasho bruh”

Thankfully, they were able get call each other to squash the conflict before it became anything serious, further pushing the need for us all to come together in unity during this period of crisis.
