Nipsey Hussle Talks With The Liftoff About “FDT” And DACA

Earlier today, Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle took to Instagram to air his frustrations with radio stations not playing his song with rapper YG “F Donald Trump.” 

The current presidential initiative, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), has been a major conversation over the past few days. 

DACA is a program that allows immigrant students to come to the U.S. and obtain an education, jobs and more. 

President Trump has been talking about ending that program which would end the opportunities of over 80,000 students. 

Nipsey spoke with Justin Credible and Dj SourMilk about the message behind this song and why it is so important now more than ever. 

The past few months, there have been hundreds of protests where this track has become a theme song as a way for people to show how they really feel. 

When it comes to the song being played on the radio, Justin Credible commented that the main outlook was having a clean version. 

He said, ” From a power 106 standpoint when we took out the word ‘F Donald Trump’ it almost just sounds like we were chanting this dudes name.”  

While the song was released back in 2016, Nipsey defends his Instagram post by saying that it’s not just about air time.

“More than anything this is not just an artist trying to get air time about a song it’s really something going on, it’s about how people feel,” Nipsey says.  

He continues “they are talking about sending kids home, I got people I with that different type of decision that Donald Trump is making is affecting.” 

He ends by talking about his passion for this situation is the main reason behind his passion and faith in the song. 

Overall, Power did receive a clean copy of the song which said “No Donald Trump.” ​
