Song by Joyner Lucas
Released: 2 May 2019
After more than 6 months since he announced his new album ADHD and releasing the lead single for it titled “I Love,” Joyner comes back with a second single, “Devil’s Work.”
Influenced by recent tragic deaths of rappers such as XXXTENTACION and Nipsey Hussle, Joyner pours out his heart in this song that serves as message to God, filled with many rhetorical questions to him, with the main one being “Why do you take good people from us and leave the bad ones?”
‘Cause Trayvon gone, and all he did was tryna fight back
Zimmerman walk around free, we don’t like that (We don’t like that)
Why you take our mothers from us?
Our fathers and our sisters and our cousins from us?
Got these children getting murdered while they double dutchin’
Wonder why the fuck you take Nipsey Hussle from us?
Damn, you took a true king, a true brother from us
This a fuckin’ marathon, but they runnin’ from us
