Joyner Lucas has discussed numerous issues in his life before. From being biracial, his own stature as an underground emcee and more, the MC doesn’t back down from any topic. On “Dear America (Don’t Shoot)”, the Massachusetts rapper details how nothing has changed post Obama election, how young men like Sean Bell in New York, Mike Brown in Ferguson and Trayvon Martin in Florida can get gunned down and get no justice. “Fuck the cops, they gon’ kill us then charge us,” Lucas spits on the track. “If I got my hand up it probably means I got a weapon, if they kill me then I guess it was in excision.”
