Most of the time when we blog about rappers on Turtleboy it’s because 860 Money Crew dropped another track about 2$moke getting arrested in Danielson. That’s because we like to highlight terrible rap as a reminder of why you should dissuade your child when they tell you they wanna be a rapper. That’s about to change.
This is Joyner Lucas out of THE Worcester South High School:
Where we didn’t have walls or usable toilets, but we did have keg parties at the Rez and half the people who graduated said they were gonna grow up to be rappers in the high school yearbook.
Joyner Lucas represents the 0.0000001% of all Worcester “rappers” who ended up attaining an actual paying career rapping. He’s an amazingly talented artist, and that’s not something I say about rappers very often. Don’t get me wrong, I grew up on hip-hop. I’m just not into Drake and Lil Wayne and all this new age shit that sounds exactly the same. I’m into Dr. Dre and Big L and the Lost Boys. Ya know, good rap.
The grassroots star is one of the biggest rising names in the industry, with millions of followers on social media, and for good reason. His latest video has everyone buzzing because it’s amazing. It’s honestly one of the best videos I’ve ever seen. It’s called “I’m not racist” and features a Trump supporter and a black lives matter dude sitting at a table yelling and swearig at each other. You gotta watch it to understand just how well this is done:
A fucking plus. The only thing I’d change is the hug at the end.
I feel like by the end both had had their say, they completely hated everything the other person stood for, but they now understood where the other one was coming from and had developed a mutual respect for one another. However, they should’ve stared each other down and shaken hands because despite their differences they’re both still hardos.
Then again my rapping acumen involves destroying Tony Deyoung in Turtleboy Live freestyles, so what do I know?
Naturally this video has offended many, many idiots who didn’t understand it:
Notice that many of the people who don’t like the video think exactly like the guy in the video. They’re divisive, they refuse to acknowledge anyone else’s world view as legitimate. They see one side as completely right and the other as completely wrong. The whole point of the video is NOT to be like either guy in the video.
Then you got Becky chiming in, and lecturing Joyner Lucas, a black man, about how he doesn’t know enough about the struggles of black people:
Friggin wypipo man. Be whiter….
It’s OK though because she’s going to university and watches rap videos, so she’s got racism all figured out.
“This rap was a white guy throwing down oppressive slurs, disgusting stereotypes and justification of slavery, mass incarceration & the unjustified killing of black men by police officers.”
Yea, no shit Becky. That was literally the whole point. Highlighting the radical fringe in America that are currently controlling both political parties.
Let me sum it up for you Jessie Lynn:
- The point of this video is not about pushing any particular political agenda.
- The point of this video is to show people the dangers of subscribing to fringe politics on either side.
- The point of this video is to teach people how ugly you look when you’re this angry.
- The point of this video is that people don’t have to find common ground to agree to respect someone else’s view of the world.
- The point of this video is that both people got the way they were by refusing to engage with people who think differently from them, only to find out that the root of their concerns were reasonable when they laid it all out on the table one on one.
“You’re scared to lose your life so you take mine, I love and hate you at the same time”
That’s one of the best lines I’ve ever heard.
It’s just so refreshing because 99% of rap is just chains, skinny jeans, and bullshit nowadays. Then Joyner Lucas comes along with this thought provoking, politically charged work of art, AND the rapping and beats themselves were better than anything Drake has ever put out. Ever.
Just another Worcester South graduate out there dominating the world. It’s what we do. Mrs. Binienda approves.
