D Smoke Let Go

D Smoke and SiR express their anger and hurt following the murder of George Floyd by police on their new track, “Let Go.” Smoke begins the track by exploring the tragedies of the pandemic, including seniors graduating on Zoom after working so hard in school. He then moves on to spitting about police brutality and the state-sanctioned murder of Black Americans, brought even more to light recently after footage of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, being suffocated to death by police began circulating this week. At the end of his second verse, Smoke makes mention of this innocent man, rapping, “I wrote this the day they killed George Floyd/We won’t forget your story.”

The song includes hard-hitting lyrics like “give a pig a rope he’ll make a noose” and “Even though they test they feet upon our neck/Or shove their knee on our spine ’til we rest in peace/And they never get convicted.” Ultimately, although SiR repeats that “The solution for this whole institution/Just to breathe, we need to let go,” Smoke decides that they’ve “done let go one too many times.”

Lyrics

[Verse 1: D Smoke]
Listen
If I don’t make it to my pillow ‘fore these lights go out
Please write about me, cite my lyrics
And know they ignite my spirit
Poor babies fightin’ depression
Been writin’ them essays to graduate with no stage
On Zoom, motherfucka?
Send me the link, I’ll check into your room motherfucka
Cybercongradulate you, then purposely agitate you
Askin’ questions like “How you supposed to protest with no chest?”
A big heart, but they closed down all the gyms
Wish you had more flex
A Rolex won’t keep you sane or safe from danger
They shut down nature
Where the fuck I’m supposed to place my anger
Ironically, my honesty might make me enemy of state
I trust that God’ll use my pen to draw his face
Still got my pistol on my waist

[Chorus: SiR]
If I shout but ain’t nobody around to hear it
How ’bout it when it echo?
I sing loud to talk to my inner child, he feel it
Your dreams made out of Legos
I reach out despite the feeling they out to kill us
Get rowdy ’bout the Pesos
The solution for this whole institution
Just to breathe, we need to let go
Oh, we need to let go
Oh, we need to let go
We need to let go
Oh, we need to let go

[Verse 2: D Smoke]
Seven pounds of flesh will hang out
When it pierce your vest and it rang out
And them tears your best friend is cryin’
It appears won’t rest, but a page out
Of the book of life, shit, pray loud
Never took a knife to a gunfight
Pops got two strikes from the umpire
Stop light, two rights on a bumped tire
And the sirens push red and blue lights, told me pull over
I should feel safer but expired plates on old Toyotas
Means I can’t afford to pay tickets to two these racist rollers
They could pull the trigger, family can’t afford to pay the lawyer
Say the word
They tell me you got the access to a league of warriors
Eyes haven’t seen what heaven keeps in store for us
There’s more of us
But in this life some wars we can’t avoid
I wrote this the day they killed George Floyd
We won’t forget your story

[Chorus: SiR & D Smoke]
If I shout but ain’t nobody around to hear it
How ’bout it when it echo?
I sing loud to talk to my inner child, he feel it
Your dreams made out of Legos
I reach out despite the feeling they out to kill us
Get rowdy ’bout the Pesos
The solution for this whole institution
Just to breathe, we need to let go
We need to let go
We need to let go (Shit, my nigga)
We need to let go (Fuck you mean, bro?)
We need to let go (Nah, bro, we done let go one too many times, my nigga)

[Verse 3: D Smoke]
Fuck bein’ patient, give a pig a rope he’ll make a noose
And fuck lettin’ go I’m all ’bout lettin’ loose
Weapons prove that talk is cheap
Chalk’ll mark the spot, where are they arteries
Release the coldest blood that’s known from West to East
And we’re prone to trust the liar
Even though they rest they feet upon our neck
Or shove their knee on our spine ’til we rest in peace
And they never get convicted
‘Cause this crooked ass system protects they peeps
They killed her uncle, now who’s gon protect they niece
We built the pyramids, why do they still experiment on the ghetto
Was taught that if you walked the earth you are my fellow
Must be naive ’cause I weave through all this black and white searchin’ for yellow
I hold on to my faith and never let go
I’m ’bout to let go

[Chorus: SiR]
If I shout but ain’t nobody around to hear it
How ’bout it when it echo?
I sing loud to talk to my inner child, he feel it
Your dreams made out of Legos
I reach out despite the feeling they out to kill us
Get rowdy ’bout the Pesos
The solution for this whole institution
Just to breathe, we need to let go
Oh, we need to let go
We need to let go
We need to let go
We need to let go
We need to let go
We need to let go
We need to let go
We need to let go
