Wale Probes Government Surveillance in ‘Gullible’ Featuring Cee-Lo Green

President Obama has been under intense scrutiny after highly classified documents published by The Guardian detailed the government’s monitoring of emails, file transfers, photos, videos, chats and phone records via the National Security Agency.

Wale addressed government spying in song “Gullible” from the newly released album “The Gifted.”

Wale’s lyricism is hard-hitting as he takes aim at what appears to be the NSA as he raps in the track’s first verse:

What if they tell you this music was bogus?
The government run it, they controlin the culture
Would you believe that if you read that?
What if they tell you the iPhone was tapped?
And see all of your browse and I know you viewin your apps
And Twitter and Instagram is really like middle man
And internet soldiers, everybody was carrying max
And when they said Obama was in a raid
He actually got a gut, tan and scratch to pair of black
Would you believe that? We reached that, look
How bout they tell you you dyin if you ain’t voting?
So now you vote for one in reline
I got a motion and believe that
You know you doin what you eat
What if they make it less? Talkin you what it do
Talkin you what’s here but never let they mother jump
Part in the flow with consistence control they many souls
I thought it’s it, loaded by television shows
Opinion show with Muslims see what they lovin boy
A little gossip to you keeps watchin it on point
So don’t believe so how they are breaking the law?
A lot of bullets are prodigal to the gullible

Wale isn’t the only musician to criticize government spying.

Rolling Stones’ lead singer Mick Jagger reportedly took a jab at the President during a concert in the nation’s capital, saying “I don’t think President Obama is here tonight…But I’m sure he’s listening in,” according to The Washington Post.

Obama addressed the scandal during a live press conference, saying, “When I came into this office, I made two commitments that are more important than any commitment I ever make.

“Number one, to keep the American people safe; and number two, to uphold the constitution,” he said. “That includes what I consider to be a constitutional right to privacy and an observance of civil liberties.”

Obama further explained the American public’s “duly elected officials have been informed” on the programs.

Obama then assured the American public that “nobody is listening to you telephone calls.”

“That’s not what this program’s about,” he added.
