As well as addressing police brutality and G-Eazy’s desire to use his platform as an artist, the song takes direct aim at US President Donald Trump.
“Fuck the President cause he a fucking racist supported by white supremacists / Fuck Donald, go back to just running businesses,” G-Eazy raps.

It comes after the Bay Area rapper announced that his new album ‘Everything’s Strange Here’ will be delayed due to the protests.
His first full-length since 2019’s ‘Scary Nights’ was initially set for release last Friday (June 5). Responding to a fan who asked him why the record did not appear as promised, he said: “Pushed the release back. There’s more important things going on in our country than releasing new music rn.”

G-Eazy is also donating 100% of his merchandise sales made this month to “various organizations.”
‘Love Is Gone’ is the first new material from G-Eazy since ‘Stan By Me’, released on May 29 and produced by Marshmello.
Last month, meanwhile, the rapper shared a pair of covers recorded from lockdown, taking on The xx‘s 2009 track ‘VCR’, and Bob Dylan‘s 1963 classic ‘Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright’.
