None of the performers are musicians, said Ibrahim, a 19-year-old Internet personality known for his widely shared short comedy videos. They found their impromptu hook so catchy that they decided to make a short Twitter video of it, said the East Baltimore native. They synced it to the song "Chicken Chicken" by the Detroit rapper Rocaine.
"We dropped that video for fun. It blew up like crazy, and everyone was like, 'Make the song for real!'" Ibrahim, who now lives in Essex, said Tuesday. "I'm not no rapper though. I do comedy videos."
Trump's campaign has not responded to requests for comment from The Sun. Per policy, a spokesman for the Secret Service declined to comment on the matter.
While the song is overtly threatening in nature (it warns Trump not to come to Baltimore "unless you want to die, though"), the lyrics also contain a schoolyard-insults spirit ("Boy ain't even white / you yellow! / You said you'd date your own daughter / You a sicko!").
Ibrahim said the song's threats of violence against Trump were not literal or even serious.
"We didn't mean no harm by it," Ibrahim said. "We don't got no damn chopper! My religion says don't even kill. I wouldn't kill an innocent fly."
Ibrahim, a Muslim, said he was partly inspired to do the song because of Trump's comments on wanting to monitor mosques.
The song began as a 28-second video upload on March 15, when Ibrahim and his friends performed it live in a car and filmed the footage for Twitter. It included an unprintable hashtag denouncing Trump, and has earned more than 11,000 retweets.
The quick success led Dooley to ask, "Rt if you think we should make [it] into a real song?" On Sunday, the finished version and video were online. Ibrahim said this would be his first and only rap song.
When asked whom he'd like to see as the next president, Ibrahim said Bernie Sanders was "cool."
"To be honest, I just want a good person," he said. "I don't really pay attention to it. I just be hearing all of the stuff Trump be saying."
