Prior to Macklemore was on “Part 2” he stated like, ‘Good s– brother, that s– was required,’ about the very first tune. I was like, “Bro, you support Trump?” and he resembled ‘F– no!’ I’m like, ‘Well look, I’m doing this remix and I desire you to get on it. It’s really with G-Eazy.’ And he resembled, ‘I got you, send out that s–.”
      “That’s simply the rap neighborhood. Everyone understand that’s where this rap s– began with: speaking about issues and exactly what’s going on in central city neighborhoods,” YG included.
