Joyner Lucas “I’m Not Racist” Official Lyrics & Meaning | Verified


There’s no resolution. It’s just, “Fuck you.” “Fuck me?” “Fuck you.” “Aight. Bye.” And it’s like, “C’mon bro.” That’s what’s wrong with the world. How do we create a resolution? As soon as the video opens immediately it’s
offensive, immediately offensive to everybody. Because you don’t know my voice, because
you’ve never heard me before you are going to think that this guy, and I think that’s
where the shock factor comes into play like “Who is this motherfucker sitting here saying
this shit?” And I knew that when writing it. For years there’s been a lot of that. That’s not new. But white people come out like, “Why?” “My favorite rappers are saying it. Why can’t I say it?” ‘Cause they’re like, “Hey, it’s acceptable
now.” and then when it’s not and somebody reacts they’re just like, “That’s not
fair.” Nobody never ever came at me like that. That would be the end of them. I couldn’t listen to somebody say that shit
to me. Mexicans do all the grunt shit that nobody
wants to do. So basically he was saying, “You should
be doing the grunt work, but you can’t.” “The Mexicans are doing it.” “So let’s kick them out like Donald Trump
wanted to do.” “r matter of fact let’s send them all to
the ghetto then.” He was being an asshole and again being racist. Pac had this side and then he had that side. He was a gangster, he was a gentleman, he
was a ladies man, he was a revolutionary. He was all these things in one. He acknowledged the wrong shit that he’s
done and he’s back tracked and he said “I said this in an interview, I take that
back now because I got more experience.” “I wouldn’t do this. I wouldn’t do…” He was real conscious, a lot of these niggas
ain’t conscious. Pac openly made mistakes and I think that’s
a lot of the reason why we look up to him. There is a lot of hip hop that’s spreading
a really wack ass message, like doing drugs. Because hip-hop again it’s such a strong
voice and a lot of people want to be hip. Even with the fashion
and the tattoos, you see that and you’re like, “I want to be like him.” It’s a cool thing. Now you’re making it cool to be a pill head
and you’re making a cool to be high all the time and drunk. You’re just talking, you’re just saying
the most outlandish shit not thinking that there is a whole generation and a cult that’s
following you and what you’re saying. Now what’s happening is they’re going
to grow up and they are, then they start using those drugs and they start dying and shit,
you know what I’m saying? They start overdosing and it’s like, that’s
your fault bro. A lot of these owners of these NFL teams they
feel like that. Like, “How dare you kneel?” Donald Trump has openly said that. If you really pay attention to the record,
like I said it slowly starts to get more and more and more racist. It went from the , “Nigga, nigga, nigga,
nigga,” to, “Nigger!” He hit that “e-r” real hard. This is what I meant by the closeted racism
shit. It’s cool, and then as time goes on it’s
out there. Now they’re being real comfortable with
it. Black culture, I guess just being black is
enough to die. You know what I’m saying? And that’s what he was saying. “Or maybe if you pull your pants up, maybe
if you put the grills out of your mouth, maybe” “if you just stop being black,” pretty much. He’s saying all this fucked up shit, but
then he goes, “Well, you know what?” “I’m open-minded enough to listen to you.” “I’m not gonna say all this fucked up shit
and leave it at that.” “I want to know what you think about me.” Fuck you. We’re not gonna do all the, “With all
due respect.” Clearly you don’t like me, I don’t like
you. You just shitted on my life, so let’s just
get disrespectful. There’s a lot of culture vultures, man. There’s a lot of people that just directly just rip off the black culture. Black culture come up with a lot of cool shit. So you’ll shit on the black man and you’ll
be racist as fuck, but then you take the very things that you’re claiming that is what is making him ignorant, and now you want to take those things because they’re cool. I made a whole record about it called “Half
Nigga” a while ago. It just breaks down everything
that I’ve been through growing up. To feel like you don’t know where to
fit in. Man I swear every time I see an article pop
up on CNN or some shit my heart drops like “Damn.” North Korea fired a ballistic missile blah,
blah, blah and I’m like, “Oh shit!” I feel like these niggas going to hit us with
a nuke soon bro. Fucking around with Trump bro, that dude is
reckless and Kim Jong-Un, the president over there, that motherfucker don’t play neither. So it’s like he ready to push that button
bro. Again, I was speaking from the perspective
of somebody who’s actually really full black that is going through all of these things. Getting harrassed by the police. I would imagine it’s enough to make somebody
cry. Again, my intention was to create a resolution. To kind of get people to open up their minds
a little bit.
