TMZ spoke with YG at LAX airport. According to the Compton native, his upcoming LP is already being scrutinized by the government agency.
“Secret Service hollered at the label,” said YG. “They asked to see the lyrics on my album to see if I’m talking about [Trump], because if I’m talking about him on my album they’re gonna try and take it off the shelf.”
This would not be the first time the government attempted to block a rap artist’s freedom of speech and freedom of expression. In 1988, N.W.A received a letter from the FBI over concerns that their song “F-ck Tha Police” advocated violence against law enforcement. Police also prevented N.W.A. from performing the record during a concert in Detroit a year later.
In addition, 2 Live Crew’s 1989 album As Nasty As They Wanna Be was ruled to be to obscene for sale in Florida by a U.S. District Court judge. The group was later arrested for performing songs from the album, but they were eventually acquitted of obscenity charges.
