It was the killings of Michael Brown
and Eric Garner
in 2014 that first inspired YG to record the track. "Then when I did the record, [police brutality] just kept going, seeing all type of s--t like the s--t that happened in Baltimore then in Chicago," he said. "It's just so many people who got murdered by the police. I went online and I Googled the people murdered by the police. Man, that s--t happen every day... Every day. Motherf--kers don't even know it."
