In the wake of NFL star Colin Kaepernick’s decision to remain seated during “The Star Spangled Banner” to protest racial injustice, there is renewed interest in the United States’ national anthem. Now, a hip-hop fan named Dero Anthony has come up with his or her own way of changing the conversation around our country’s official song. Anthony has started a petition to drop the two-century-old Francis Scott Key number and replace it with the Diplomats’ classic “Dipset Anthem.”

“The current National Anthem is BS,” reads Anthony’s plea. And…that’s it. No further explanation is given, nor is it required. 

The petition has 974 signatures as of this writing, out of its stated goal of 10,000,000. <— This via Associated Press and COMPLEX mag 

All this can lead us to wonder is, will America be chanting “You gon suck it or not”? .. If you have heard the Dipset Anthem it is pretty vulgar and comical. Would you want this to be America’s National Anthem? All jokes aside.-Jdm
