Terrace Martin, Denzel Curry, Kamasi Washington, G Perico, and Daylyt Share Protest Song ‘PIG FEET’

    Terrace Martin has shared a new track featuring Denzel Curry, Kamasi Washington, G Perico, and Daylyt. Titled ‘PIG FEET’, the track arrives amidst a national uprising against systemic racism and police brutality following the death of George Floyd. Check out the song, alongside a music video showing images from protests as well as the names of black people who have been killed by police officers, below.

    The video opens with sounds of gunshots accompanied by the statement: “This video is happening right outside your window.”

    Backed by Washington’s tenor saxophone, Curry delivers his verse: “Helicopters over my balcony/ If the police can’t harass/ They wanna smoke every ounce of me.” He continues: “Murder was the case they gave us/ Manipulate the system so the prison could save us/ Nothin’ can save us.”

    Terrace Martin, who co-produced six tracks on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, wrote: “Someone asked, how do I feel? I told them hurt, fearless, angry, aware and fully ready to protect me, my family & my people at all cost. I get together with my Black men that felt the same way and created a work of truth. PIG FEET.”
