May 8, 2024

He also announced that he would donate all proceeds from the song to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

In the song, the 40-year-old singer from Seattle, said he was not voting for U.S. President Joe Biden in November’s presidential election, saying in the song lyrics that “The blood is on your hands, Biden, we can see it all,” 

The hip-hop musician, who urges a ceasefire in the song titled “Hind’s Hall,” named after a Palestinian girl who was killed in an attack in Gaza, also raps about the recent protests at U.S. universities against Israel’s actions in the Gaza war and in favour of solidarity with the Palestinians.
