On part two of “FDT,” Macklemore uses his new verse to aggressively attack the Republican presidential nominee for his advocacy of banning Muslims and stance on gun control.
“Your politics are like a Starburst pack/ Why?/ Nobody f—s with the orange one/ Banning all Muslims?” Macklemore raps. “Alright, cool/ What if we ban all the white dudes/ Because a couple have run up in trench coats and rifles/ And killed in the name of Jesus Christ at the high school/ How about we stop selling automatic guns/ You got rich because your daddy gave you automatic funds/ Add it up you’re an automatic punk.”
Later, G-Eazy compares Trump to Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan. “This man’s not peaceful/ Racism is evil/ This man hates Muslims/ That’s a billion f—in’ people/ If truth be told, Donald is a terrorist/ Reasons why the world’s got a problem with Americans,” G-Eazy spits.
“FDT Part 2” closes with YG noting that the remix features two white rappers. “Thought I was makin’ songs just to ride to/ But come to find out your own kind don’t even like you,” YG raps.
In an interview with Billboard, YG claimed the fire that sparked the single was “a million things. It got to a point where [Trump] was disrespectin’, saying shit that makes no sense. Me and Nip always talk about doing real shit about these politics, stepping up and saying stuff other motherf—ers are not doing, so we finally hit the studio and really did it.”
