"F.T.S." is a searing take on the British class system and how pre-determined life can feel when millions are born into a life established by their surroundings. The group, Lil Trubz, Jasper Wilde, and Peter Judge-Fernandez , don't sugar coat things, spitting “Look how we’re living don’t you think it’s a bit fucked” over a heavy rap beat.

The accompanying video flashes a series of stark images, including oil rigs, bank notes, and the infamous Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, onto the faces of Lil Trubz as he performs.

Speaking to The FADER via email, Lil Trubz said: “As a writer, I’ve always told stories about the life around me. I began noticing that politics is a prominent part of everyday life, unknowingly for many people, so I thought it was only right to give some insight into the thin line between real life and politics.”
