The rapper behind the music video, who recently faced charges for viciously beating his pregnant partner, is attempting to make a stand against what many see as racist police violence against African-Americans.

The video, which graphically depicts the strangulation of a small, white boy while the Rapper and a black boy look on is yet to face any kind of censure, age restriction or demonetization from YouTube.
