Joyner Lucas’ “Devil’s Work” Explained

Joyner Lucas is back with his new single, “Devil’s Work,” and it’s filled with references to fallen icons in the music industry. Joyner mourns the death of artists like XXXTentacion, Nipsey Hussle, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, and 2Pac. Throughout the song, he contrasts the deaths of these musicians (as well as figures like Martin Luther King and Trayvon Martin) with the continued life of reviled people like Suge Knight, R. Kelly, Donald Trump, and George Zimmermann.
