YG explains how the official remix of his Still Brazy single “FDT (F*ck Donald Trump)” came together in a newly-released interview with i-D/VICE. Speaking to the outlet about his “anti-Trump crusade,” the “Twist My Fingaz” rappers breaks down his new politically-charged direction. “It’s like, wake up, America,” he says. “Motherf*ckers are talking about drugs and parties and guns and sh*t. But they gotta know there’s more sh*t going on. We gotta say something, cause if not, it’s like we’re out here standing for nothing, like we ain’t got no morals. That ain’t what it is. That ain’t me.” Continuing, he says:

“As people, we can come together and we can protest, but honestly, that shit probably ain’t going to change. We’ve gotta figure out who’s behind the scenes, who will lead the people, and how we’re going to get to them. Black people are painted as beefing with each other and killing each other, and that’s why I think [police and politicians] think they can get away with so much shit — cause we do fucked up shit to our own kind. So when we come together in protest, that really means something. It’s powerful. But, is that really going to make a difference with what’s going on? I don’t know, and that’s the truth. But it’s a start.”

The Compton rapper provided the backstory for the new, G-Eazy and Macklemore-powered “FDT” remix with these words:

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 “Fuck Donald Trump” record, that shit is gonna mean something. Before Macklemore was on “Part 2” he said like, “Good shit bro, that shit was needed,” about the first song. So I was like, “Bro, you support Trump?” and he was like “Fuck 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 shit.” That’s just the rap community. Everybody know that’s where this rap shit started from: talking about problems and what’s going on in inner city communities.

YG also revealed that a ”Part 3” or “Part 4” of “FDT” could be coming on our way as well, explaining that he needs to take some time off tour and “get his sh*t together.” Next up, we can also expect a video for his recent Drake collab “Why You Always Hatin?” to drop in the near future.
