G-Unit dropped their new song “Ahh S–t” last week in the midst of the riots that were taking place in Ferguson, Mo., where the unarmed black teenager Mike Brown was shot and killed by a police officer. 50 Cent and the guys seemed to be airing frustrations with the police that were being expressed via social media. And now the video for the song addresses full-on the topic of police brutality.
The first thing you see when you watch the clip for “Ahh S–t” is that it’s rated “R” for “police brutality, graphic violence and explicit language.”
It then jumps to real footage of Eric Garner, the Staten Island man who died after a cop put him in a chokehold and medical personnel did not help him once he said he couldn’t breathe. Then there’s footage of Ferguson, where many roam the street as cops in military gear stand guard.
