Kanye West Released A New Song “Wash Us in the Blood”

Kanye West has delivered a new song and visual.

On Monday (June 29), the Chicago rhymer announced the name of his forthcoming album, God’s Country, via Twitter. At that time, he also shared that a new project with cinematographer Arthur Jafa was going to be released for a record titled “Wash Us in the Blood.” This morning (June 30), Kanye made good on his promise as the Jafa-directed visual is here and it features Travis Scott.

The video begins with footage from a protest in Florida, where a Black female officer from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department can be seen scolding her colleague for pushing a kneeling protester to the ground earlier this month. The visual then shows two individuals, who appear to be struggling to breathe, receiving medical attention. Ye’s new video seems to encapsulate the many aspects the country is currently facing including the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement protests.

“And they tryna control ‘Ye/They want me to calm down/They don’t want me to be Kanye/They don’t want Kanye to be Kanye/They wanna sign a fake Kanye, they tryna sign a calm ’Ye/That’s right I call him Calm ’Ye, but don’t take me the wrong way/But don’t take me the wrong way, its got took me a long way,” ‘Ye raps on the record.

La Flame then spits, “Let it off, set it off/Execution, thirty states (That’s right)/Thirty states still execute (Ah)/Thou shall not kill, I shall not spill, Nextels at the rendezvous (Ooh)/We dodgin’ time in the federal (Get ’em)/Squad box you in like a sectional/We walk through the glass and the residue (Ooh)/Now look what we headed to (Ah).”
