See Talib Kweli Rap About Surveillance State Danger in ‘Full Frontal’ Spoof

“Unencrypted apps let ’em have all your data that’s private/ Like every dick pic that you sent your side chick,” rapper says

Talib Kweli warns Full Frontal viewers about the perils of a surveillance state in "A Music Video for White People (And Everyone)." The song originally appeared as part of Samantha Bee's longer, Mr. Robot-inspired segment about malicious software, hacked webcams and how Big Brother is always watching.

"Lock your phone with a passcode/ Or what you're downloading gets stolen/ Basically to be the black Edward Snowden," Kweli says on the track, which is a play on the rapper's Kanye West-produced 2002 hit "Get By."

"The NYPD put the 'troll' in 'patrol'/ They online collecting everything that we post from Twitter to Vine/ Unencrypted apps let 'em have all your data that's private/ Like every dick pic that you sent your side chick."
