Clever has been an accomplice from the start of his career in the music business. The Alabama-born recording artist has previously commented on racial equity in his music, most notably on his 2019 song “Wooden Box”. As the fight intensifies against anti-Black racism in the United States, many have spoken out and used their platform to promote the change they want to see in the world. Clever continues being an accomplice to the Black Lives Matter movement, releasing his new song “Skittles” with Lil Baby, which deals with themes of police brutality, anti-Black racism, and more.

“Skittles” is one of the later songs on Clever’s debut album Crazy, featuring Lil Baby as the two artists speak on their own experiences with the law. In Clever’s hook, he references the murder of Trayvon Martin, singing, “When they get you for the Skittles and you pull over/I don’t wanna pull over anymore.” Martin had taken a walk to his local corner store to buy a bag of Skittles and he was fatally shot while returning home by George Zimmerman.

In Lil Baby’s verse, the Grammy-nominated artist continues his work from “The Bigger Picture”, making rhymes adjacent with what he was spitting a few months ago.

Lyrics

[Chorus: Clever]
Got the push-to-start but I had to pull over
If I beat another case, what’s the score?
If I beat another case, what’s the score?
When they get you for the Skittles and you pull over
I don’t wanna pull over anymore
I don’t wanna pull over anymore

[Verse 1: Clever]
I get on my grind all the time like the 12 on the watch, on my Rollie
I keep twelve on the watch but they can’t hold me, no
I lost my rights to keep a tool, I pray they never tempt me
‘Cause if they play me for a fool, I’ll bust it ’til it’s empty
Bitch, I’m a giant that’s alive from the beanstalk
You can throw shots now, I got me a slingshot
Got the long arm of the law in a sling
I don’t even name, I just sling shots, let it ring, shot, yeah
We don’t really fuck with them 5-0
Trying to pull me over up on the side road
Got a light blade and I drive slow
Got a black man in that car with me
They treat me like it’s just a drug thing
It’s just another couple thug thing
Throw ’em in front of the judge thing

[Chorus: Clever]
Got the push-to-start but I had to pull over
If I beat another case, what’s the score?
If I beat another case, what’s the score?
When they get you for the Skittles and you pull over
I don’t wanna pull over anymore
I don’t wanna pull over anymore

[Verse 2: Lil Baby]
Where I’m from, the garbage made us hard as we got used to violence
I just lost my dog, this shit been hard, give him a moment of silence
Before I go out soft, I swear, I’ll start a riot
Seems like we the only ones talkin’, why everybody quiet?
Kill him in cold blood, won’t give a fuck about his mama crying
I try to stay up so I won’t dream about somebody dying
We ain’t askin’ for much, it won’t be nothin’, this shit ain’t rocket science
And I’m little as fuck but I speak up to ’em like a giant
I’m ridin’ for us, it ain’t no question, I done picked my side
Before I take a chance and stop and lose my life, I’ll keep on drivin’
I get knocked down all the time, I get back up and keep on strivin’
They don’t wanna see me lit, my only job’s to keep on shinin’
