    "F.U.B.U.” is a Black empowerment anthem (say it with your chest!). In the interlude before the song, Master P says, "If you don’t understand my record, you don’t understand me, so this is not for you," and that's what this song is all about.

    YG and Nipsey Hussle channeled all of our sentiments towards this election in "F**k Donald Trump." The video showed the the whole hood, Bloods and Crips alike, going off in the streets of Compton.
