No Justice No Peace


“FTP,” standing for “Fuck the Police,” is a single from California rapper YG. The track, released during nationwide protests regarding George Floyd’s May 2020 murder, is meant to address the trends of police brutality inequitably affecting Black Americans.

The track was first announced by YG on Instagram on June 1, 2020, where he revealed the track’s cover art and imminent release later in the week.

This is not the first time YG has made a politically-driven track. In March 2016, he released a similarly-acronymic track “FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)” to address his issues grievances with Donald Trump, who was running for president at the time (before his eventual election).

YG – FTP - Genius

A due anni di distanza dall’uscita del singolo FDT (Fuck Donald Trump), YG ha pubblicato in risposta alla morte di Floyd e alle proteste dei giorni successivi il pezzo FTP, acronimo di “Fuck The Police” e omaggio al classico del 1988. Nonostante non lo nomini mai direttamente, il rapper di Compton parla di «un omicidio dopo l’altro, dopo tutti questi anni» e dice: «Ku Klux Cops, la loro è una missione». Il pezzo racconta il senso di stanchezza che si prova protestando per le stesse ingiustizie che gli afroamericani subiscono da secoli. «Siamo stanchi, vaffanculo alle scritte sul cartone, siamo nei campi», dice a un certo punto, e poi: «sono stanco di essere stanco di essere stanco». Ovviamente, il senso del pezzo è tutto nel ritornello: «Fuck the police. Fuck ’em. Fuck the police».

Contro i Ku Klux Cops: ecco le canzoni di protesta nate dopo l'omicidio di George Floyd
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police

Fuck the police, that's how I feel
Buy a Glock, break down the block
That's how I feel (That's how I feel)
Murder after murder after all these years
Buy a strap, bust back after all these tears
Mommas cryin', how they gon' heal? (How they gon'?)
How you would feel?
Fuck silence, speak up bitch, this shit ill
(Big-big) Big stick on me, y'all kill, we kill
Been tired, fuck cardboard signs, we in the field
It's the Ku Klux cops, they on a mission
It's the Ku Klux cops, got hidden agendas
It's the truth, I won't stop
Open cases, police already hate me, why not
Make your rich-ass city look like trash (Look like trash)
To whoever make the rules, we need answers fast
Oh they mad, fuck it, let's make 'em mad (Let's make 'em mad)
Without that badge, you's a bitch and a half

Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police


Protect and serve mean duck and swerve
Police pulled me over, I don't stop, I'm scared (Scared)
Fuck 12, bitch, I got the nerves
Fuck 12, bitch, they get on my nerves (Fuck 12)
Ayy, fuck pig, fuck bacon (Bacon)
I don't eat pork, I replaced it (Fuck, fuck)
Fuck you and your slave ship
We supposed to be free like the Masons
I'm tired of being tired of being tired
I'm tired of being shot at like a opp
Callin' all the foolies from the tribe
We on some fuck the police shit, it's the vibe
I hate when they handcuff me (Me)
Actin' tough with a vest and a gun, he think he keen
I hate when they handcuff me
Actin' tough, callin' for backup, I think he weak

Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police
Fuck the police (Fuck 'em), fuck the police

The Ku Klux cops, they on a mission
It's the Ku Klux cops, got hidden agendas
It's the truth, I won't stop
It's the-it's the-it's the truth I won't stop
Protect and serve mean duck and swerve
Protect and serve mean duck and swerve
Fuck the police, that's how I feel
Fuck-fuck-fuck, fuck the police
