Rapper Lil Baby unleashed a bizarre anti-police performance during Sunday night’s Grammy Awards.
Lil Baby’s performance depicted a black man being shot in the back by a police officer.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“When I was growing up, I was taught in American history books that Africa had no history, and neither did I, that I was a savage,” said a voiceover by Lil Baby, whose real name is Dominique Armani Jones, as the man got out of the car and hands the officer his ID. Two officers than took the man to the ground to cuff him, but he stood up and ran away. One officer then shot him in the back.
As Jones started rapping in a set made to look like a city street, another man threw a Molotov cocktail at a building, setting off a large blaze. The scene was reminiscent of the riots that burst out across the U.S. after the death of George Floyd while in police custody…
The performance included an appearance by Black Lives Matter activist Tamika D. Mallory, who called on President Joe Biden to bring “justice, equity, policy, and everything else that freedom encompasses.”
“It’s a state of emergency. It’s been a hell of a year. Hell, for over 400 years. My people, it’s time we stand. It’s time we demand the freedom that this land promises. President Biden, we demand justice, equity, policy and everything else that freedom encompasses, and to accomplish this, we don’t need allies. We need accomplices. It’s bigger than black and white. This is not a trend, this is our plight. Until freedom,” Mallory said.
