It’s f*cked up but I’m going to come back bigger and better. I’m gonna partner with Black Lives Matter and do this sh*t the right way, for the people, for the city and for all the artists that want to pop out and participate. With that being said, ‘F*ck The Police’ is out right now. It’s in my bio. I couldn’t wait for the label. Yeah! I’ll see y’all outside!” -YG’s Instagram
