FDT,” a source of anti-Donald Trump joy for many, is now becoming a headache to YG. TMZ caught up with the Compton rapper and asked him how he felt about the impact about the Nipsey Hussle collaboration has had. YG said he’s now, in fact, under the Secret Service’s lens.

“The Secret Service holla’d at the label,” YG said in mild annoyance. “They asked to see the lyrics to my album… Because if I’m talking about [Trump] on my album, they’re going to try to take it off the shelves.”

But the album, YG’s sophomore effort, still doesn’t have a release date almost a year after buzz single “Twist My Fingaz” dropped. One would imagine the Secret Service would get off his case if the project comes out in December and Trump already lost the election.

The Secret Service isn’t the only authority ruffled by “FDT.” The song’s video shoot in early April was shut down by Los Angeles police, according to TMZ. One Instagram user claimed that officers brandished firearms at the scene.

“We was all in a peaceful F**K DONALD TRUMP mood,” the user said.
