AceShowbiz - Robin Thicke is teaming up with Nas for new single "Deep". Robin releases the track on SoundCloud. "Here's my new single - 'Deep' with my man @Nas," he writes on Twitter. The song opens with a verse from Nas addressing police brutality.
Nas raps, "When will they stop killin' 'em? Askin' why is they killin' for? White man with a gun apprehended, he still alive/ Black man with a gun, he has no chance to survive/ They gon' shoot him dead soon as they see the brown of his eyes/ And they ask me, 'Why you ain't smilin' Nas?' Cause I have a son and I die inside when I gotta tell him what was told to me."
He also raps about the current presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton, "A toupee wearin' liar's tryna run the U.S.A/ You makin' our lives harder, you're like the argument queen/ There's women out here going hard doing positive things/ Slam dunkin' in games, directing movies like 'Selma'/ World's startin' to change and you actin' the same/ 'Cause you don't even see what I see in you/ Next female president could even be you/ Bringing' kids in the world that we gotta teach/ Just give me good sex and give me peace."
Robin, meanwhile, sings, "We could be everything, everything that we ever needed/ Everything that we ever wanted to be, we could still be/ It ain't that deep, it ain't that deep."
Robin is currently working on a new album, the follow-up to 2014's "Paula". He will join Beyonce Knowles, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj for "TIDAL X: 1015" at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Saturday, October 15.
Nas, meanwhile, recently joined Alicia in her Times Square concert along with Jay-Z and John Mayer.
