Mathers wrote the song immediately after 9/11. "I was heartbroken," she recalls. "But all over Los Angeles, you'd see countless American flags flying from cars. Our country was unified - briefly."

In the first part, "By Any Means: Part (1)," ScHoolboy Q and his crew hang outside their L.A. neighborhood playing dice before cops show up and break up their good time. They hide inside for a while, but eventually get kicked out and make their way to a pawn shop to look around. At the halfway point, ScHoolboy Q shares the track "By Any Means," which has him backed by his whole crew rapping on his front porch.
In the latest installment, ScHoolboy Q's crew (minus him) returns to the pawn shop they visited in the first part of the story, but this time they have different intentions. They rob the store and seem to get away with it before the cops discover where they live. Unfortunately, because he's in the wrong place at the wrong time, ScHoolboy Q gets swept up in the arrest.

Listeners can stream or purchase the entire track on iTunes. For now, check out a brief snippet of the song in NASA's trailer for the mission here.
