JPEGMAFIA gets political on new song, “The Bends!”

The rapper stumbles through the desert in the accompanying video.

JPEGMAFIA has released a new politically charged single, “The Bends!.”

The track is a scathing rebuke of President Donald Trump, and samples a 2019 speech in which he said, “But the support we’re getting from the African American community has been overwhelming, and I wanna thank each and every one of you.”

After the snippet, Peggy gets straight to work. “I’mma tell we like Trump told you / Fuck it, n***a, what we got to lose? / Ain’t gon’ be no peace with the crew / ’Cause it’s one piece we gon’ aim at you.” The song’s accompanying self-directed video features Peggy rapping the track in the middle of a desert while wearing a beekeeper’s suit.

“The Bends!” is the latest loosie from JPEGMAFIA, following “Cutie Pie!,” “BODYGUARD!” and “Covered in Money!.” He also previously collaborated with Denzel Curry for a remix of “BALD!.”
