T-Pain Releases Black Lives Matter-Inspired Song, ‘Get Up’

T-Pain has released a new song titled “Get Up” to inspire people to stand up and make a change, in light of racial and social injustices being brought to the forefront.

The rapper revealed that the song was originally supposed to be released in March; the video opens up with a powerful message from Malcolm X speaking on oppression and exploitation.

T-Pain also released merchandise to support the record and proceeds from the sales and streams will go to Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice (@CSSJustice), an organization that is a national network of crime survivors with chapters all over the country who have joined together to focus on building safer communities through healing as well as shaping public policies.
