Have y'all heard Macklemore's new song?
In true Macklemore and Ryan Lewis fashion, the duo is tackling some major issues in their new song, "White Privilege II".
With lyrics like, "The culture was never yours to make better. You're Miley. You're Elvis. You're Iggy Azalea," and "We take all we want from Black culture, but will we show up for Black lives?" It is certainly controversial. The former line even sparked a small beef with Iggy.
Macklemore can personally attest to experiencing white privilege. He famously texted Kendrick Lamar, "You got robbed. I wanted you to win," after beating him out for Best New Artist in 2014.
I personally commend the rapper for actually taking a stance. For having an opinion that may not be the popular one. My only issue...The song is almost NINE MINUTES LONG. NINE MINUTES.
