Mike Brown-inspired “Cops Ain’t Shit” gets a razor-sharp follow-up, “Cops Still Ain’t Shit”, by Declaime and Saul Williams

In the wake of Mike Brown’s murder, Declaime and label mate Georgia Anne Muldrow pushed out the single “Cops Ain’t Shit,” declaring “cops ain’t shit / pigs ain’t either.” 3 years have passed, with hundreds of mass demonstrations world-wide demanding justice, and the criminal justice system remains as fucked as ever. To keep the volume up, Declaime is back to remind us “Cops Still Ain’t Shit.”
The track off his new record, the Afrofuturist-leaning Young Spirit, gets an assist from Saul Williams at his most abstract, and a firey verse from Ms. Deezy. The beat is updated from Muldrow’s original production to a razor-sharp edge. But the message remains the same. “Cops still ain’t shit / pigs ain’t either.” Stream it now on Spotify.
