Here's all the videos with cops/law enforcement on a YouTube playlist...
1. Joey Bada$$ feat. BJ The Chicago Kid - "Like Me" 2015 Joey Bada$$ managed to make a culturally relevant banger...we could really use a lot more of these right about now. The police continue to take innocent black lives almost daily in the United States and they're getting away with it. It's can be hard to know how to help such a horrific reality so you can start by making a formal complaint to the Seattle Police Department for the murder of Charleena Lyles, a pregnant woman who called the police for help and was murdered in front of her children just days ago. There's also a Go Fund Me set up for Charleena's family if you're in a position to help.
2. OCnotes - "Hum Drum Killa" 2015 Another amazing Stephan Gray creation. In general, I hate guns but slow motion underwater gunshots are kind of amazing. I sincerely hope OCnotes stays weird for all of his days on this planet.
3. The Beatnuts - "No Escapin' This" 2001 There are so many times in which I think JuJu AKA Jerry Tineo looks like he could be Redman's brother...this is one of those times.
4. Kool + Kass - "Peaceful Solutions" 2013 If only the police were trained in peaceful solutions...
5. Run The Jewels - "Oh My Darling (Don't Meow) Just Blaze Remix" 2015 The USA needs some giant cats with laser eyes to come pull some superhero shit right now.
6. Denmark Vessey - "Think Happy Thoughts" 2016 It can be hard to think happy thoughts when there's so many dark forces against us right now but messages of love are vital to get us through this without losing our minds.
7. Jorja Smith - "Blue Lights" 2016 Shout out to Jorja Smith for creating art that sheds light on the terrifying reality of black people in America today. In her words, “It questions why you should have a guilty conscience if you've done nothing wrong." She explains. "The video is about a black male who portrays three different paths he could've gone down in life... as a boxer, a police officer and just a guy in a hoodie. This man is fighting with himself and the perception that society and authority have given to him. How can a young black male run away from the stereotypical stigma and hatred towards police if it is on every screen or paper they see? The boxer is quite literally being beaten up by society's perceptions. The video's narrative is just one example of the negative stereotypes many people suffer each and every day."
8. Brockhampton - "Heat" 2017 No actual cops in this video but the song is inspired their dark presence in our country.
9. Silent Lambs Project - "Mic Choke" 2002 SEATTLE MUSIC Silas Blak has been doing it bigger than you for decades.
10. Cadenza feat. Jorja Smith + Dre Island - "People" 2016 Here's some ideas about what to do instead of calling the police...
11. BADBADNOTGOOD feat. Snoop Dogg + Kaytranada - "Lavender" 2017 The police, media, and (not my) president really are clowns; very scary clowns. Fortunately, Snoop's gonna take em out for us.
