Rising Georgia artist Terrell Hines has called in Vince Staples for a remixed version of Hines’ 2019 track “Get Up.” The song expresses socially-conscious lyrics that nod to the current Black Lives Matter movement.
Measuring at a little under the three-minute mark, the song comes with an artful, politically-charged lyric video filled with protest signs, police cars and the American flag. Backed behind a percussion-filled mid-tempo beat, Hines delivers a soulful vocal performance complemented by Staples’ sobering rhymes. Lines like “they say life too short, but not easy / I say what I want, I’m not P.C / You know black folks killed when police, please / Just seen one on the TV / Make about three this week” and “Pressure risin’, I might go diamond / Outcasted, I might get blasted” are laced throughout the track, painting a vivid picture of both artist’s sentiments about the U.S.’ current affairs.
