The recently-revealed artwork for Joey Bada$$'s forthcoming All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, which you can see above, has him leaning out the side of a rusted Cadillac, flipping off the camera in front of the stars and stripes. Think of it as an artful response to walking, grilling racist wet dream Kid Rock. This morning, he dropped another single from the record, "Rockabye Baby." Working alongside Schoolboy Q, Joey puts up some of his most vicious, political bars. "If you 'bout this revolution, please stand up / We ain't got no one to trust / Time is running up / Feel the burn in my gut / And if you got the guts, scream, 'Fuck Donald Trump.'" Schoolboy doesn't back off either. "Your son picked up on your beef, real shit," he raps. "From getting lynched in field into owning buildings / Getting millions, influencing white children / And oddly we still ain't even."

Listen to the track below. All-Amerikkan Bada$$ is out April 7.
