T.I. & Kap-G Speak On Police Brutality On CNN

Posted by , Apr 23, 2015 at 04:58pm

T.I. and Kap-G guest on CNN to talk about the relationship between police and minorities.


Kap-G is one of a few Mexican-American rappers shedding light on the injustices the Hispanic community faces on a daily basis, as he did on last year's "Policia." Earlier this month, both T.I. and David Bannerremixed the song, extending Kap's message to their shared experiences as part of the African-American community. 

Today, both Kap and T.I. were invited on CNN to talk about their thoughts on police brutality within minority communities. T.I. is the first to speak, saying police show an "undeniable fear that, I believe, law enforcement has for minorities, and it is reflected in their actions." As music is "a reflection of our circumstances," Tip says the anger heard in today's hip-hop is inevitable. 

Kap-G goes on to recount an incident a couple years ago when he was racially profiled and unjustly searched by a police officer, and how it inspired him to write "Policia."
