After posting a video and uploading the track on SoundCloud, an anti-Trump song by a group of Baltimore rappers has gone viral.
The clip, titled “CIT4DT,” was posted Sunday on Abdel Ibrahim’s YouTube channel and has since been viewed over 24,000 times. The SoundCloud stream has been played nearly 3,000 times in 2 days. The song’s title is an acronym for “Choppa in a Trunk 4 Donald Trump,” and it is performed by Abdel Ibrahim – who goes by Dooley, – Tlow and Lor Roger, according to The Baltimore Sun.
Ibrahim said none of the performers are musicians. The trio found the hook catchy enough to make a music video for the song, set to the beat of “Chicken Chicken” by Rocaine, a Detroit rapper.
“We dropped that video for fun,” Ibrahim said to The Sun Tuesday. “It blew up like crazy, and everyone was like, ‘Make the song for real!’ ” I’m not no rapper though. I do comedy videos.”
The 19-year-old is a prominent Internet star, known for posting comedy clips that are frequently shared online. He has more than 61,000 Twitter followers and over 67,000 followers on Instagram.
Trump’s campaign has yet to comment on the video and while the song does have some threatening lyrics, like “don’t come to Baltimore unless you want to die,” Ibrahim said they didn’t mean any harm by their words.
Baltimore City Paper reports that the song has several links to other hip-hop performers. In the intro, the song says if Trump comes to the city, he’ll get “hit in the head with Moose’s shovel,” a reference to East Baltimore rapper Young Moose. They also call the Republican presidential candidate a “b**** and a half,” which City Paper links to Lil Boosie’s “F*** The Police.” The song also contains the same insult.
Ibrahim said the song, which initially began as a 28-second video on Twitter, was inspired by Trump’s comments on wanting to monitor mosques. Ibrahim, who is Muslim, told The Sun, “My religion says don’t even kill. I wouldn’t kill an innocent fly.”
Though the video continues to gain popularity, Ibrahim isn’t looking to take up rapping full-time. He posted this in response to a request for a “CIT4DT” remix to be released:
