YG defended going uber white by getting the two fellow West Coast hip-hop artists on his revamped anti-Trump banger.
“They’re the two biggest white rappers in the game! I’m like, if I get two of the biggest white rap dudes in the game on this “F*ck Donald Trump” record, that sh*t is gonna mean something. Before Macklemore was on “Part 2” he said like, “Good sh*t bro, that sh*t was needed,” about the first song. So I was like, “Bro, you support Trump?” and he was like “F*ck no!” I’m like, “Well look, I’m doing this remix and I want you to hop on it. It’s actually with G-Eazy.” And he was like, “I got you, send that sh*t.” That’s just the rap community. Everybody know that’s where this rap sh*t started from: talking about problems and what’s going on in inner city communities.” (i-D)
The Compton rapper also talked about possibly releasing additional “FDT” versions.
“Man, I labeled it “Part 2” because a “Part 3” or “Part 4″ could happen. I just gotta get off this tour and start putting some sh*t together!” (i-D)
Last month, YG admitted the government took serious action following the release of his political anthem.
“I knew that was going to come with some consequences,” YG said referring to his politically-charged Still Brazy raps. “The secret service hit up the label, we had to change up words on songs to get them on the album. They even stopped me from doing certain shows at certain places. The [‘F*ck Donald Trump’] record caused a domino effect and all types of things, you feel me, but it is what it is. You have to sacrifice out here in this world. I’m trying to leave a mark in this cement.” (Complex)
