Legendary Memphis rapper and producer Juicy J is the latest musician to release a timely song about America’s systemic racism and police violence, intimately discussing the pain he’s experienced throughout his 45 years of life in “Hella F*ckin’ Trauma.”

The chorus combines tales of his friends in jail, the deaths of African Americans at the hands of law enforcement, his issues with Columbia Records and more. Juicy J also produced the record.

“When they gone stop killin’ ni**as man? Enough is enough
Why they lock up all the real ones man? Enough is enough
Labels wanna own my masters, enough is enough
I can’t hit you on your Cashapp, enough is enough
You gon’ be a hater all your life, enough is enough
Got me ready to ride ’round with that pipe, enough is enough
Man, that sh*t ain’t right, I know my rights, enough is enough
I can’t sit back, let ‘em take my life, enough is enough”

Earlier this year Juicy was tapped for a handful of features, ranging from Bones’ “Timberlake” to production work on “495” from Kevin Durant’s Basketball County documentary. He also teamed up with fellow Memphis rapper Duke Deuce for his Crunk Ain’t Dead Remix.

Listen to the track above. In more music news, Leon Bridges delivered a new single “Sweeter” with Terrace Martin, “written from the perspective of a black man taking his last breath and feeling his spirit leave his body.”
