While the song is utilizing a sample we all might not agree with, Meek Mill shares his sentiments over the ‘Otherside Of America’ track.
The Philly rapper dropped a surprise track this morning. Titled the “Otherside of America.” The track distinctively debuts a sample of a not quite recent sound bite of Donald Trump. “What do you have to lose?” The sample is from a 2016 rally quote when the then-candidate attempted to court the black vote. The video of this speech showed up in a viral video on Twitter.
The record opens up with the voice of Trump “You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”
In a historical protest this past week, millions of Americans have been joined by citizens in several counties. In a show of solidarity, they share empathy and support while Americans are mourning the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Tony McDade at the hands of police.
