“I don’t know what happened but we got raided and it was like thirteen cops upstairs, putting us in a line, making us put our IDs on the floor and sh*t, our hands up. I was like what the f*ck is going on right now. And this was fresh off of seeing all these videos and these series so I was like I’m for sure dying right now. I’m dying to the hands of policeman, this is crazy.“
“But luckily nothing happened. I just decided to make a song and just get it off my chest. I was more making it just to help the mothers, and the loved ones of the victims heal and a year later unfortunately the situation was relevant again which was crazy.“
