T.I., also known as Clifford Harris Jr., released new music this month.
The song, “Warzone,” is available on Tidal and accompanied by a video illustrating the latest instances of police shootings by white officers.
In the video, T.I. recreates the widely recognized police shootings of Tamir Rice, Eric Garner and Philando Castile, only with black actors playing police officers and white actors playing the black kids, fathers and family members killed or impacted by the aforementioned shootings.
“WarZone” can be divided in these three parts:
“They pull you over, ask you where your license at. Be careful reachin’ for it, you know you can die for that,” T.I. raps.
The political piece closes with a voice-over from “Anti-Racism Activist and Educator” Jane Elliot.
“If you white folks want to be treated the way blacks are in this society – stand! – Nobody is standing here,” Elliot is heard saying on the track.
