YG and Nipsey Hussle’s popular song, “F— Donald Trump” is now being played repeatedly on radio stations across the country due to a (pretty awesome) hack.

The thing is, the uncensored version of the song is being played. FADER reports that a hack occurred on Monday  on Sunny 107.9, a radio station in South Carolina. Frank Patterson, president and majority shareholder of the station addressed the matter in a since-deleted Facebook post captured by Buzzfeed.

“This is NOT our broadcast!” he wrote. “We at WFBS do not take political views! The FCC and WFBS are working to fix this situation ASAP.”

The hacking reportedly first took place on Jan. 20, the day of Trump’s inauguration, when a number of small radio stations were hacked. An oldies station in San Angelo, Texas; El Jefe 96.7 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee; Mother of the Redeemer Radio 103.5 in Evansville, Indiana; and Crescent Hill Radio in Louisville, Kentucky all played the song as a result of the hack as well.

The hackers have yet to be identified, but Radio Insight says they gained access through a device called Barix Exstreamer, which is an unsecured audio transmitter.

“With significant interest to take over the devices for political messages or even blackmailing, there will be more takeovers and maybe even ‘hacks,’” Rietschel told BuzzFeed in an interview.
