Disallow yourselves to be troubled in my time of absence. All of the great ones who came before and will come after me: Have had to go through this. By this I’m speaking in reference to hardship. A great person is measured by all of the great tests they can undergo and still remain true to who they are. With that being said “I’m Him.”

The Louisiana rapper also shared a music video for his song “What If,” which you can watch above. The visuals feature depictions of police brutality.
