The murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police has resulted in local riots and worldwide outrage. Joining the protest, Juelz Santana has shared a new verse dedicated to Floyd.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, the rapper shared the track with an image of the deceased under the words "Justice for George." In his verse, Juelz digs into the justice system, which allowed another unarmed black man to be murdered in cold blood.
"All they wanna do is prosecute us," he opens his verse. "Shoot us when they ain’t gotta shoot us/They kill us, turn around, and then protect their own/Meanwhile, we can’t even protect our own." He continues, "If we try, they lock us up and don’t wanna send us home/Next time you see your kids they be already grown/Only God can judge me, only Heaven knows.”
