In a new interview with DJ Whoo Kid, YG opens up about how the Secret Service got involved when they got wind of some lyrics on his new album Still Brazy. His song “FDT” (Fuck Donald Trump) stirred up the most controversy, and he ended up having no choice but to censor some of the anti-Trump lyrics.
The Secret Service called in on Universal and was like, ‘Send me the lyrics to YG’s album because we gotta see what he’s talking about.’ They did the whole album. That’s why on ‘FDT’ on the album, it’s parts of the song that I had to blank out. Then on the next song ‘Blacks & Browns,’ when Sad Boy’s spitting his shit—he said some shit towards Donald Trump too—they heard that, and we had to either change it or blank it out, so we put the static noise on top of that. But yeah, it was a real situation going on… Ever since John F. Kennedy got assassinated, they can’t have no people promoting kill Trump, shoot Trump, pop Trump, all that. And we had those types of lines up in the song.
In the 11-minute clip, YG also talks about what he’ll do if Trump becomes president, working with Nipsey Hussle, reuniting with DJ Mustard, the difference between Los Angeles and Hollywood, and getting shot. Watch it above, and listen to Still Brazy below.
