On her news show, which was posted to YouTube on Wednesday, June 9, Melber recited Pusha-Tthe lyrics to “SNITCH”, from his 2013 debut album My name is my name, while explaining what the term “snitch” means to cooperate with the FBI.
The use of Pusha’s song is linked to the correspondent’s reporting on Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, who is the subject of a criminal investigation by the New York attorney general’s office in relation to his taxes. Authorities hope the pressure will make Weisselberg a cooperative witness against former President Donald Trump, who is also under criminal investigation.
“Covering his own tracks, he didn’t care,” Melber said, quoting the president of GOOD Music. “We had an inheritance that he killed, I have to carry it / Break your heart when the man you call your brother, be the same that set in motion all the under covers / Great friends now, this no is not an affiliation, divided by the time he faced.
Push was delighted to see Melber using her bars on the show. The Virginia rhymer took to his Instagram page on Thursday, June 10 to share a clip from the MSNBC host mentioning his rhymes. “I have to be the most quoted on @thebeatwithari. @Arimelber is doing the numbers and letting people know…” King Push captioned the video.
This isn’t the first time Melber has used rap lyrics to explain his point of view. Previously, the news analyst used Lyrics by Quavo on the 2018 Migos track “Walk It Talk It” and Mobb Deep’s 1995 Classic Song “Shook Ones Part II“to rant against former POTUS Trump.
