Robin Thicke's new single "Deep" is as smooth a track as you'd expect from the soulful crooner but gets a solid dose of outspoken consciousness thanks to a feature from Nas

The track, produced by Rich Skillz, opens with a verse from the iconic rapper addressing the epidemic of police brutality with lines like "Man, it hurts to see a 'cop killed a black man' alert."

Nas continues a cappella without any backing beat, "And they ask me why you ain't smiling Nas/ Because I have a son and I die inside when I've gotta tell him what was told to me/ Can't play with your water gun, son, 'cause the police see a 7-year-old as a threat/ They think it’s right to kill a 7-year-old on sight 'cause he ain't white."
