LISTEN: Nasty C And T.I – They Don’t

Since January of 2019, It’s finally here! It’s been public knowledge that Nasty C and T.I. had some work in the pipeline.

The song by the 2 legendary rappers titled “They Don’t” addresses the ongoing police brutality.

Nasty C handles the song’s melodic hook, singing:

"I can only imagine the pain and the grief
from the innocent mothers with all the shit they had to see
when you lose the ones you love to the fuckin' police 
it cuts deep."

The Durban-born rapper switching over to rap, says he can only pray for things to get better.

"When you lose the ones you love to the fuckin' police, it cuts deep
 When Heaven calls and the angels do they job
We start to question God like we could play His part"

In his verse, T.I. talks about the current protests that have erupted from the killing of George Floyd. He raps:

"2020, guess it's the year of the burn, consequences you earned
To build this nation that you hate me in, the karma's returned
Well, that's a stupid question, when will you learn?
 You never will, word to George Floyd, Emmett Till, and Sean Bell
Guess they'd rather see us all in civil unrest
 Than to go and make some fuckin' arrests, fuck is that?"

Nasty C has expressed on many occasions that T.I. is one of his biggest inspirations as a rapper as he was one of the first hip-hop artists he listened to and who inspired him to pen his own raps.
