Rapper Ludacris tweets approval of protesters chanting 'Move b---h' lyrics from 2001 song at NYPD officers

Ludacris is standing with protesters in New York who broke out into a chant at NYPD and summoned his lyrics to have their message heard.

Despite the city placing an 8:00 p.m. curfew, marchers gathered Tuesday near the Manhattan Bridge to protest the death of George Floyd and chose one of Ludacris’ most deliberate and poignant songs, his 2001 release “Move B---h,” in an organized effort to get the police to un-restrict access to the bridge.

“Move b---h, get out the way,” protesters recited as officers barricaded both ends of the bridge, trapping many marchers in the process.

The "Fear Factor" host has been among many prominent names in entertainment making their voices heard amid the death of Floyd, a man from Minneapolis who died while in police custody after an officer kneeled on Floyd's neck for eight minutes, moments that were captured on cellphone video. In the footage, Floyd, 46, shouts “I cannot breathe” and “don’t kill me,” before losing consciousness.

Since-fired officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's death.

Last week, Ludacris, whose real name Christopher Brian Bridges, released the timely track “Silence of the Lambs” in which he raps about many of the issues plaguing not only the black community but the world as a whole.
