Robin Thicke and Nas just dropped some heat addressing police violence and relationship issues in a new track called “Deep.” Featured on Robin Thicke’s upcoming project, Nas sheds a lot of light on the current climate and Black men being targets by the police. Esco literally gets deep as he spits,

 

“The problem’s gettin’ worse, a modern 1973, Johannesburg
Man, it hurts to see a cop kill a black man alert
News flash, police shoot blacks, distort facts
Quick attack, unarmed men, murder them
It’s captured on cellphone video and they still let ’em go
When will they stop killin’ ’em? Askin’ why is they killin’ for?
White man with a gun apprehended, he still alive
Black man with a gun, he has no chance to survive
They gon’ shoot him dead soon as they see the brown of his eyes

And they ask me, “Why you ain’t smilin’ Nas?”
Cause I have a son and I die inside when I gotta tell him what was told to me
Can’t play with your water gun son ’cause the police see
A seven years old as a threat
They think it’s right to kill a seven years old on sight ’cause he ain’t white
So baby if I’m actin’ uptight
When our conversation is weak, it ain’t you
It’s just it ain’t that deep”

Nas

 

After those powerful words, Nas then delves into relationship issues that many women should take heed too. Talking to all the lost Black girls, Esco drops some relationship gems and takes some shots at Donald Trump with:

 

“Suspission’ got you livin’ in your own prison
You need to leave that alone
Before you sittin’ in an old folk’s home alone with no visits
So exquisite but mess it up when you’re tone’s risen
And any day when you don’t get your way
Gettin’ mad at everything I say
And you don’t think it’s an emergency
A toupee wearin’ liar’s tryna run the U.S.A
You makin’ our lives harder, you’re like the argument queen
There’s women out here going hard doing positive things
Slam dunkin’ in games, directing movies like Selma
World’s startin’ to change and you actin’ the same
‘Cause you don’t even see what I see in you
Next female president could even be you
Bringing’ kids in the world that we gotta teach
Just give me good sex and give me peace”

Peep the powerful track now.
