The Five Most Vile Anti-Police Raps

Editor’s Note: This report contains foul language that readers may find offensive.

To say that cops and rappers have a tense relationship would be an understatement.

Long before the #BlackLivesMatter movement took hold, many rappers have been singing about police run-ins, alleged “police brutality,” and their overall hatred and distrust of the “system.” Using their talent and fame, stars like Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar and Jay Z have recently bolstered the BLM movement by highlighting current events in their songs and social media. For example, on July 8, Minaj tweeted: “May the spirit of Malcolm X be reborn… for such a time as this.” Lamar’s song “Alright” from his 2015 album “To Pimp a Butterfly” included the words: “And we hate Popo, wanna kill us dead in the street for sure.”

Is it any wonder that relationships between the two communities aren’t getting any better?

Yet, Lamar and Minaj’s words are tame in comparison to the lyrics you’ll find in our list of the top five inflammatory raps. (And yes, there are way more than two songs with the title “Fuck the Police.”) 

 

Fuck the Police” [N.W.A., 1988]

“A young nigga on the warpath

And when I'm finished, it's gonna be a bloodbath

Of cops, dying in L.A.

Yo Dre, I got something to say”

 

“Fuck Tha Police

Fuck Tha Police

Fuck Tha Police

Fuck Tha Police”

 

Cop Killer” [Body Count, 1992]

“I'm a cop killer, better you than me.

Cop killer, fuck police brutality!

Cop killer, I know your family's grieving,

(fuck 'em!)

Cop killer, but tonight we get even, ha ha.”

 

“I got my brain on hype.

Tonight will be your night.

I got this long-assed knife.

And your neck looks just right.”

“DIE, DIE, DIE, PIG, DIE!

FUCK THE POLICE!”

 

Protect & Serve” [UGK, 1994]

“I know ya got a vest so I'm aiming at your head

Bloody, red, I'm going to your funeral I'm spraying hoes with lead

Fuck respect for the mutherfuckin' dead

Cause I don't give a fuck about a punk ass fed

I'm splittin' niggas wigs and leavin' pussies on they head

And I'll be goddamned if I don't hit, {​killing him}​

Tell {​Moody Harris}​ they gon' want to come and get 'em

So ashes to ashes and bless his soul

Now bend his ass over so I can fuck him with his stick in his asshole”

911 Is a Joke” [The Game, 2012]

“I hate the muthafuckin' pigs cause them pigs hate me

And I should kill 51 cops

For the 51 shots

“Cause I'mma cop killa

911 is a muthafuckin' joke

Cop killa”

 

Fuck the Police” [Lil Boosie, 2014]

“We need to be like Khaled niggas, and kill cops
