A viral rap video in which a group of black teens armed with weapons threaten to kill Donald Trump is being celebrated by several media outlets.
The lyrics to the song, entitled “F*ck Trump Anthem,” contain a number of violent threats towards the presidential candidate, including a vow to cave Trump’s head in with a shovel and a promise that if he visits Baltimore, Trump will “die”.
One of the lines in the rap also talks about filling Trump with hollow point bullets.
“We got a choppa in the trunk for Donald Trump,” the teens sing in the chorus. Choppa is a slang word for an AK-47.
The main protagonist behind the song is Abdel Ibrahim, a Sudanese Muslim who includes the phrase “All praise be to Allah” on his Twitter profile.
Bilboard.com reported that the track was a powerful “viral protest song,” noting that it landed a “barrage of verbal blows on Trump”.
A Baltimore Sun write-up of the video characterizes it as a humorous jape, saying it has a “schoolyard-insults spirit,” while giving Ibrahim a platform to claim “We didn’t mean no harm by it”.
According to a Twitter user, the song is even being played on the radio in South Jersey.
One suspects that if a group of white rednecks had released a song in which they threatened to kill Hillary Clinton, media coverage wouldn’t have been very complimentary.
