Just as the anti-Ricardo Rosselló protests in Puerto Rico (and across the world for that matter) reach a critical mass, Bad BunnyResidente and iLe have dropped a scalding hip-hop number calling for the people of Puerto Rico to figuratively sharpen their knives, ahead of the planned protest by various celebrities (including Benito, who left his tour in Europe to join, Ricky Martin and others) calling for the disgraced governor’s resignation.

As we’ve seen over the last few days, protest against Rosselló have grown by the day in light of a leaked set of chats in which the governor and members of his cabinet ridiculed everything from the LGBTQI community, to the fallen victims of Hurricane Maria. In response, Residente and Benito have taken to the studio to point out the governor’s multiple scandals, and help fan the flames of Borinken’s discontent.

Laid out over a blown-out hip-hop beat, the two flex their lyrical ability while iLe sings the chorus. The trio hold nothing back as they outright attack Rosselló, calling him a dictator, a homophobe, and an accomplice to murder, among many other indictments.
