Ty Dolla $ign shares a portion of his new song with Skrillex and Ant Clemons about the death of George Floyd.
People are sick and tired of having to read about another black man killed by the police after George Floyd lost his life last week. The 46-year-old man lost his life due to asphyxia by way of sustained and forceful pressure to his neck and back, cutting off his airway. Protests have taken place across North America and several artists have spoken out by way of their music.
We have already shared new songs from Conway The Machine ("Front Lines") and Terrace Martin with Denzel Curry ("Pig Feet") and now, Ty Dolla $ign is contributing with some powerful lyrics about the current state of affairs in the country.

"Rip #georgefloyd and all the others that lost there life to police brutality and injustice. Shits been happening for far too long now. It’s time for change and we demand it," wrote Ty Dolla $ign before sharing a snippet of his new song with Skrillex, Ant Clemons, and more on Instagram.
"I know you see it/My people dying in the streets and they ain't breathing," he sings. "I know you heard about it/You know the issues but the problems you ain't speaking/How many more of my brothers do I gotta lose till I see change."
