Nas Raps About Police Brutality in Robin Thicke's New Song 'Deep'


The 'Nas Is Like' hitmaker also takes a jab at the current presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton.
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.
