IDK’s New Single ‘Mr. Police’ Relays The Risks Of Driving While Black

The track is off of the Maryland rapper’s forthcoming album ‘F65’.

On Thursday (April 20), IDK released his new single and video for “Mr. Police”, a thought-provoking effort that relays the dangers of driving while Black.

The track, which is off of the Prince George County, Maryland rapper’s forthcoming album F65, was a topic of conversation on MSNBC’s show The Beat with Ari Melber.

Mr. Police, how are you? You say I sped right past you,” the 30-year-old rapper spits over a jazzy melody. The theme of IDK’s latest release vividly describes the fear and precautions Black people take when encountering law enforcement. It’s those precautions that translate into the visual, which features reenactments of oh-so-familiar interactions between police and people of color.

We want to create awareness in order to prompt dialogue and potentially change the narrative around law enforcement misconduct,” IDK states at the end of the video. “Not all police officers are bad. This is to shine a light on the ones that are.”

IDK took to the Mojave stage at Coachella, where he debuted his limited-edition Nike Air Max Pro 97 collaborative sneaker and Grand Theft Auto Mercedes Benz custom race car. Racing is a main theme of the rapper’s new LP, however, the human race is an even bigger focus, with “Mr. Police” leading the way.

F65 is slated for a May 5 release.
