F/K/A Tragedy Tha Beast, Chicago emcee TtheGAWD spits powerful bars, speaking on the position of people of color in this country, sparked by the recent wave of brutal police encounters that have swept the nation. “Never Loved Us” is a play on the quotable from Drake’s “Worst Behavior” (remember?) and was produced by Chicago blogger / graphic designer / artist OTN (OnThatNoise); the artwork comes courtesy of Patrick Campbell. Catch the vibe:

“For the last several months the world has been watching as officers of the law take the lives of unarmed black people, young and adult, and go unpunished. The majority of the masses feel one way or another; some in favor of the officers, some in favor of the slain. This is how I feel. This is my response. This is in no way an attack on any race, but it is a message loud and clear to those in power who allow these situations to be mishandled and to those targeted.”
