Last year, the singer and poet released a short film titled Remember Me, Toronto that addressed the surge in gun violence in the city, featuring Drake and rappers from the city’s different hoods discussing how the violence-hit home personally.

He continued to propagate his anti-gun message in his first single, “Stay Alive.” The singer’s haunting vocals and powerful words against friends flashing gang signs created the kind of effective contrast that would make Kendrick Lamar proud.

He returns with a follow-up single, “Air Forces.” Jamie xx joins “Stay Alive” producers Frank Dukes and Simon Hessman to deliver a quiet introspective folk-tinged beat that samples a Sudanese tribal chant.

Mustafa’s delicate voice is wrapped around a minimal acoustic guitar loop, sounding on the verge of tears as he begs his friends to “just stay inside tonight/you know what’s happening tonight.”

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Don’t crease your air forces
Just stay inside tonight
You know what’s happening outside
You say it’s okay
But you tucked your chain
Like if they take it
I won’t see you for a while
And I tell you how I feel
In case it’s the last time
You know the odds, you know the flaws
It’s all by design

[Pre-Chorus]
And you’ll go anywhere, though it ain’t safe
Just know that I care, I’ll always care
And I’ll be awake

[Chorus]
I’ll be awake
I’ll be awake
I’ll be awake

[Break]

[Verse 2]
And all these intersections
Where we’ve been kept and left in
I wonder why God keeps us alive?
To what are we even destined?
Where we have wives and children
Or is that not written for you and I
You know they want what’s yours
And they want what’s mine
And if we’re too holy, they think we’re folding
They don’t want us to climb

[Pre-Chorus]
And you’ll go anywhere, though it ain’t safe
Just know that I care, I’ll always care
And I’ll be awake

[Chorus]
I’ll be awake
I’ll be awake
I’ll be awake (I’ll be)
I’ll be, I’ll be awake
I’ll be awake

[Break]

[Outro]
You see a couple kids runnin’ around, playing games
The dope boys ridin’ around, ridin’ bikes
Then you see obviously mans comin’ over at the green box
Just crackin’ jokes, kickin’ up
