“Rockabye Baby” finds the two MCs making politically charged statements over an ominous piano loop and a steady beat. Joey fires first, zeroing in on Donald Trump by echoing YG’s famous refrain: “Time is running up, feel the burn in my gut / And if you got the guts, scream ‘Fuck Donald Trump.’” The momentum shifts with Q’s slow-burning, socially conscious second verse. “From gettin' lynched in fields into owning buildings / Getting millions, influencing white children / And oddly we still ain't even / Still a small percentage of blacks that's eating,” he raps.
All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ arrives April 7 (the same day Kendrick told us to have our shit together by) and also features guest appearances from J. Cole, Styles P, Chronixx, and more.
