If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates me
Have you read the you tube comments lately
“Man, that’s gay” gets dropped on the daily
We become so numb to what we’re saying
A culture founded from oppression
Yet we don’t have acceptance for ‘em
Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board
A word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores it
Everything about this song — the beats, the message, the guest vocalist — is brilliant. Macklemore pours out his heart in such an honest and thoughtful way. My friend Kristen says this song “brought her ears back to hip-hop, and should be an anthem for gay rights.” Well put. Can’t wait to see Macklemore this fall.
Happy Friday, y’all.
