"It's gonna take a f--ked up black cop killing a innocent white man on camera for people to realize this s--t is wrong I guess," Ty Dolla $ign tweeted earlier this month as police-involved shootings of black men continued to occur across the nation. As a tribute to the black lives lost such as Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown and recently, Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, Ty recruited his incarcerated little brother, Big T.C., for the emotional song "No Justice." 

"Some s--t is getting worse before it's getting better/ It's like the people got a curse, can't nobody stay together," sings Big TC. "I watch you gun my people down, plus we're killing off each other, no, no/ Ain't no justice for the brothers."

Black History Month: Ty Dolla $ign Talks Power of Social Media for Social Change

Earlier this year, Ty penned an essay for Billboard in honor of Black History Month, discussing the power of social media in bringing about social change. "For those of you that don’t know, the reason I named my album Free TC is because my lil’ brother is named TC," he wrote. "He’s locked up for something that he didn’t do and what I’m trying to do is just raise awareness around the whole mass incarceration thing going on in our country, especially with our people."

Watch the three-part video, which debuted on Instagram, below. "No Justice" appears on Ty's upcoming mixtape, Campaign, which hosts a title track featuring Future.
