“First, you find a house and scope it out/ Find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don’t believe in bank accounts.”
On his 2014 song "Meet the Flockers," YG presents a step-by-step guide on how to execute a home invasion. The first step: 'You find a house and scope it out/Find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don't believe in bank accounts." The two-and-a-half year old lyric is now sparking outrage in the Asian-American community and has inspired hundreds who believe the song glamorizes robbery of Asians to stage protests at multiple stops of YG's current tour.
After a group of 30-50 Chinese-Americans picketed YG's show in Maryland last Wednesday, another group showed up to voice its disapproval outside his show Monday night at New York's Irving Plaza.
