The Oakland MC steps up first, spitting, “A Trump rally sounds like Hitler in Berlin,” and calling out the Republican nominee’s alleged Islamophobia and egregious response to the mass shooting at Pulse in Orlando. “A mass murder happened, you said thanks for the congrats,” G-Eazy raps. “You tryna get your votes up, you don’t got class.”
Macklemore meanwhile opens his verse with a vicious punchline — “Your politics are like a Starburst pack (why?) / Nobody fucks with the orange one” — before taking on Trump’s proposed ban on all Muslims and double standards regarding terrorists and gun violence perpetuated by white men. The Seattle MC even mulls a move to Canada should Trump win, but quickly backtracks, proclaiming, “I got an eagle on my arm, I’m a patriot / I’ma stay right here, I ain’t livin’ in fear / With my people who are Muslims, Mexican and queer.”
YG even turns in a new verse where he hilariously promises, “Piss on your golf course just to find you” and spits, “You’re too old, you keep lying, that’s why your hair falling out / Donald Trump, call him out, KKK supporter / His favorite phrase, ‘Deport ’em,’ how the fuck y’all endorse him?”
The original version of “FDT” appeared on YG’s second LP, Still Brazy, and featured a guest verse from Nipsey Hussle.
