As he awaits trial on criminal gang conspiracy and shooting from a motor vehicle charges, Drakeo The Ruler is making the most of his time. The rapper was acquitted of murder charges last year, and since that time, he's been putting in work. He recently released Free Drakeo, and now he's back with his 19-track project Thank You For Using GTL. The album, produced by JoogSZN, only hosts a few features from ALLBLACK, Rio Da Yung OG, and Lil 9.

“I’m still the same Drakeo, jail hasn’t changed me or my lyrics,” Drakeo the Ruler reportedly stated in a press release. “People should be able to say anything in their lyrics without them being used against them. I’m not involved in the shit I’m on trial for. They are using their wild imagination against me. On top of that, they actually let the snitch out, the one who was involved in the stuff I was rhyming about.”

“My message to fans is that I’ll be out soon," he continued. "I’m not guilty and I’ll keep putting music out till out I’m out. I’m going to always be myself regardless of the situation I’m in. I’m just going to get better and better.” All of Drakeo's bars were recorded over the phone while the rapper has been locked up, so check it out and let us know your thoughts.

These current times have called for many artists to get into the studio.

On the anthem-like single, Tee Grizzley raps about the realities of excessive force used by the police as Queen Naija and the DYC sing the chorus, telling "Mr. Officer" that "Y'all are killing us."

On YouTube, Tee Grizzley shared a few thoughts about his track. "I got a million experiences I can touch on in my music, but I couldn’t make another song without speaking on what’s going on 💔," he wrote. I’m not a politician or activist but right now it’s everybody’s job to speak up because the pain, the struggle for equality and the brutality is real. ✊🏾✊🏿✊🏽" Stream "Mr. Officer" and let us know what you think.

Quotable Lyrics

Y'all supposed to be the heroes though
You know, protect and serve, not takin' us off of the Earth
I see the police and it f*ck with my nerves
They pullin' me over, I'm showin' 'em both of my hands
And watchin' my words, I got insurance, no warrants
He pointin' his gun like he wanna blow it
Tell me why we gotta die? He went for his wallet, reach for a gun
You think that some sh*t he'd try? On a cop?
He can't breathe and you still chokin' 'em, man, why would he lie?
Your knee in his neck, you ain't gotta do all that
It's one against five, RIP


NFL Players Want League To Admit It Was Wrong About Peaceful Protests

Professional football players recently banded together to help create a viral video. Some of the NFL's most championed players spoke directly to the league when they asked the NFL to openly condemn racism, stand on the side of Black Lives Matter, and admit that they were wrong in silencing players, including Colin Kaepernick, who called for peaceful protests. While the league hasn't directly answered the requests of its black players just yet, they have issued a statement regarding the recent political climate without mentioning George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, or police brutality.

"This is a time of self-reflection for all – the NFL is no exception. We stand with the black community because Black Lives Matter," the NFL wrote on their Instagram page. "Through Inspire Change, the NFL, Players and our partners have supported programs and initiatives throughout the country to address systemic racism. We will continue using our platform to challenge the injustice around us."

They added that to date, they've already "donated $44 million to support hundreds of worthy organizations." Additionally, "This year, we are committing an additional $20 million to these causes and we will accelerate efforts to highlight their critical work. We know that we can and need to do more." Players and fans are waiting to see if they'll respond to the viral clip. Check it all out below.
