Joyner Lucas searches for answers on his new single “Devil’s Work.”
In the powerful clip, the rapper appears in a funeral setting in a church surrounded by photos of Nipsey Hussle, Tupac, Aaliyah, and Donald Trump. He holds a Bible in one hand and a Hennessy bottle in another while speaking to God and asking him why he took certain lives over others. “We supposed to be your children / I thought we family / You supposed to be my father, brah, I need answers,” he raps.
“They say you never wrong, but you don’ made a few mistakes / ‘Cause you taking the wrong ni**as / Maybe you should trade / Trade us back all the real ones, remove the fakes,” he says while the camera cuts to a photo of Suge Knight.
“Give us Tupac back and take that ni**a Suge,” he continues. “Give us Biggie, give us Pun / Give us XXX / Take that ni**a Trump with you, that’s a bigger threat / That’s too much power for a coward with no intellect.”
