Is this plain genius or simply too controversial?
LL Cool J and country music star Brad Paisly created some controversy with their new collaborative single “Accidental Racist.”
The single “Accidental Racist” will appear on the rap legend upcoming album Authentic, due later April 30.
See some of LL Cool J lyrics excerpt:
“Dear Mr. White Man, I wish you understood / What the world is really like when you’re livin’ in the hood / Just because my pants are saggin’ doesn’t mean I’m up to no good / You should try to get to know me, I really wish you would / Now my chains are gold but I’m still misunderstood.”
See some of Brad Paisly lyrics excerpt:
“I’m just a white man comin’ to you from the Southland / Tryin’ to understand what it’s like not to be / I’m proud of where I’m from but not everything we’ve done / And it ain’t like you and me can rewrite history,” Paisley sings. “Our generation didn’t start this nation / We’re still pickin’ up the pieces, walkin’ on eggshells, fightin’ over yesterday.”
