The Brief: "You About To Lose Yo Job" is a viral internet remix of a woman singing "You about to lose yo job" to an officer. The mix is by producers DJ Suede The Remix God and iMarkkeyz of the Cardi B "Coronavirus" (Remix).
Police brutality and unfair detainment by the police is being exposed more and more now that cell phone cameras are around. A young woman’s video of her detainment went viral after she began peacefully singing and dancing to her own tune once handcuffed by an officer. It is unclear when the video was originally taken, but it surfaced on the internet within the last week.
She first asks, “Why are you detaining me?” before she begins singing, “You about to lose yo’ job. You about to lose yo’ job. Get this dance. You about to lose yo’ job, ’cause you are detaining me for nothing.” In the video, the officer is visibly amused by the song, as he laughs and looks away.
The internet seemed to have the same reaction, quickly sharing the video across Instagram and Twitter, under various hashtags, including #YouAboutToLoseYourJobChallenge and #YouAboutToLooseYourJob.
