New Music: Swizz Beatz feat. Scarface - 'Sad News'

  /  07.07.2016

Swizz Beatz and Scarface unite for “Sad News,” a protest song in light of recent police shootings.

“This must stop,” Swizz wrote on Instagram. “[Scarface] and I have something to say today.”

The track features a somber Swizz on the hook. “A little boy got shot down today,” he sings. “I hope his family is OK / They said erase that pain / I hope the whole world be OK / Get on your knees and pray.”

Scarface takes over from there with potent rhymes. “Shot down for the dope and the dollar sign,” he raps. “I often sit and wonder, ‘Could this world be mine?’ / Nah, I’d be lying / If I said I ain’t heard ’em when they told me I was ‘just a ni**a’ / Nothing but a burden to society.”

Swizz and Scarface aren’t the only ones outraged by the police shootings that have concerned the nation this week. Beyoncé, Drake, Chris Brown, and many others have also shared their outrage in different ways.

All of this comes in the wake of two separate incidents where two black men, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, were shot and killed by police during incidents that are now under investigation.
