IDK Makes A Statement With “Mr. Police” Single & Music Video
As per usual, the weekend has brought with it plenty of new releases for your consideration. The most popular albums to drop came from names like Swizz Beatz and NBA YoungBoy, while singles from the likes of Latto, Moneybagg Yo, and Belly have been doing numbers. Elsewhere this week, we heard from IDK on Thursday (April 20) with his political “Mr. Police” single. The song was accompanied by a visual depicting some of the horrors that can occur when Black folks are stopped by authorities in America.
“Mr. Police, how are you? / Just like your clothes, you make me blue / I look both ways, I cross the street / There was no one around, how did you see me?” the Maryland native innocently asks as his song begins. Things become more heated on the chorus as IDK continues, “And I’m like, what the f*ck he mean? Got a n*gga f*cked up / Ain’t no way that I believe, I’ll be shit out of luck / All these pigs wanna test me, tryna put me in the cuffs.”
IDK’s “Mr. Police” Visual is Here
As HipHopDX notes, the lyricist took a similar statement-making approach with his last release before “Mr. Police.” At the time, he and Rich The Kid came together for the first time on “850 (We On Top).” The collab hears IDK chiefly reflect on his past and the years he spent in the trap. He’s obviously since been able to turn his life around, visiting cities like Los Angeles, Japan, France, and Spain while spreading an important message with his music. Back in February, he also gave us his “Radioactive” single, which came alongside an energetic visual.

Mr. Police, how are you?
I know my rights, I’m no fool
You question me, I don’t know shit
My lawyer told me to close my lips
