Canada’s own Preme has come through with his new single “Lost Hope,” which arrives complete with some powerful visuals highlighting the message. Tackling the topic of police brutality, Preme showcases his melodic prowess as he reflects over atmospheric production. “All I see is homicide, feel it when my momma cry,” he laments. “You know what the mission is, don’t know how I feel inside / We was always down to ride, if I slide my ni*gas slide.”

His observations continue into the second verse. “They hate to see a ni*ga on his feet,” he raps. “Probably why a Karen goin’ viral every week / That’s why the cops starin’ like food stuck in my teeth.” Despite the serious subject matter at hand, Preme keeps it moving with a subtle approach, highlighting the disturbing reality that systemic racism isn’t exclusively reserved to the United States of America.

Preme – Lost Hope

Lyrics

[Chorus]
At times I feel like we lost hope
I turn on the news and they just keep on killin’ Black folks (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’m duckin’, dodgin’ police (Yeah, ah-ah, yeah)
I’m duckin’, dodgin’ police (Yeah, ah-ah, yeah)

[Verse 1]
I just gotta make it today (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Keep my soul, I can’t be a slave
Changed my life and took it all away
Drippin’ ’til my well runs dry
All I see is homicide, feel it when my momma cry
You know what the mission is, don’t know how I feel inside
We was always down to ride, if I slide my niggas slide
If you ain’t a nigga gettin’ money, you won’t feel the vibe
Runnin’ the streets
I’ve been up so many nights ’cause I can’t sleep
Friends turn to foes but I’m in too deep
So many lost souls got me dealin’ with grief
Mm-mm, mm-mm

[Chorus]
At times I feel like we lost hope
I turn on the news and they just keep on killin’ Black folks (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’m duckin’, dodgin’ police (Yeah, ah-ah, yeah)
I’m duckin’, dodgin’ police (Yeah, ah-ah, yeah)

[Verse 2]
I had a son to feed, ran the streets to water my seed
Ran with hustlers and thieves, roll up our sleeves and see VV’s
My life a movie but no PG, yeah
See how we livin’ it’s like 3D, yeah
Got what I want, then I got what I need, yeah
Stand up nigga that never been on his knees, yeah
And what’s faith if you ain’t willin’ to leap? Yeah
I see it clear, they skippin’ real niggas like a leap year, yeah
Yeah, they hate to see a nigga on his feet
Probably why a Karen goin’ viral every week
That’s why the cops starin’ like food stuck in my teeth
Mm-mm, mm-mm

[Chorus]
At times I feel like we lost hope
I turn on the news and they just keep on killin’ Black folks (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’m duckin’, dodgin’ police (Yeah, ah-ah, yeah)
I’m duckin’, dodgin’ police (Yeah, ah-ah, yeah)
