我见过太多家伙想要模仿Hip-hop OG而不得要领
I see so many people lost who really try to pretend

但或许我也只是个正好赶上潮流的白人小子?
But am I just another white boy who has caught on to the trend?

当我拿起麦克风是否意味着Hip-hop离消亡又进一步?
When I take a step to the mic is hip-hop closer to the end?

因为我每次的演出都能看到大量白人粉丝
‘Cause when I go to shows the majority have white skin

他们大力鼓吹像大风车和头转这样的街舞动作
They marketed the windmill, the air flair and head spin

然后白人rapper就这样开始得到更多的播放次数和关注
And white rappers’ albums really get the most spins

自Eminem以来 Hip hop的形象早已大不一样【Eminem和Macklemore都是白人rapper】
The face of hip-hop has changed a lot since Eminem

如果说他偷走了黑人rapper们的权益 那我大概和他没什么两样
And if he’s taking away black artists’ profits, I look just like him

把一样并不属于自己的东西据为己有 可以这很美国【暗指欧洲来的白人来到北美赶走原住民并建立美国】
Claimed a culture that wasn’t mine, the way of the American

Hip-hop就这样被白人”改良”了 那么原来的继承者们会被赶去哪呢?【Gentrification指大城市中产阶级对贫民窟的重建,往往让真正低收入人群无家可归,此处指白人说唱蒸蒸日上意味着作为真正说唱正统的黑人再次失去了地位】
Hip-hop is gentrified, and where will all the people live?

就像他们对Central District Beacon Hill和 South End所做的那样,【均为西雅图少数族裔聚集区域】
It’s like the Central District, Beacon Hill to the South End

白人们到了以后只会迫使原本的居民们搬到更远的地方去
Being pushed farther away because of what white people did, now

所以我的音乐能有今天是否只是因为我的种族?
Where’s my place in a music that’s been taken by my race

是因为我的白色脸孔所以变成了赤裸裸的文化抄袭吗?
Culturally appropriated by the white face?

我们真的不愿承认这现象的存在
And we don’t want to admit that this is existing

一直受益于白人特权的这个说法让我感到害怕
So scared to acknowledge the benefits of our white privilege

毕竟想要与众不同改变世界是人类的天性
‘Cause it’s human nature to want to be part of something different

特别当你的祖先是欧洲基督徒的时候
Especially when your ancestors are European Christians

绝大多数白人都不想承认这事儿正在发生
And most whites don’t want to acknowledge this is occurring

毕竟他们正在用这音乐大赚特赚,不用考虑这其中的煎熬和抗争
‘Cause we got the best deal, the music without the burden

不用考虑作为黑人rapper们在这中间受的委屈 尽情摇滚【暗指白人先是把摇滚乐据为己有,现在又想对Hip-hop故技重施】
Of being black in a system that really wants you to rock

因为你只需要一个软件就可以随便做你的Hip-hop
‘Cause all you need is a program and you can go and make hip-hop

我们讨厌主流 因为我们决定谁是主流
And we hate the mainstream ’cause we’re the ones that took it

所以我们穿着写着布鲁克林的字母Tee听着Aesop Rock 显得我们小众有逼格【Aesop Rock和布鲁克林都被认为是“真正的”hip-hop元素,Macklemore认为这正是白人虚伪的表现:他们把嘻哈从街头带到主流,却开始把自己当成最忠心的卫道者】
Now we listen to Aesop Rock and wear t-shirts that say “Brooklyn”

但其实这真的无关黑人白人 对吧?
But it’s not about black and white, right?

我相信好的音乐不论来自什么肤色终究都会是好音乐
I mean good music is good music regardless of what you look like

但你不去致敬前人那是不是有点太自私了?
But when you don’t give them props isn’t that selfish?

这就像妄称猫王发明了摇滚乐那样扯淡【以猫王为代表的白人艺术家将摇滚乐带到了美国得主流文化中,但不可否认是黑人音乐家们发明了真正的摇滚乐】
That’s like saying rock was actually started by Elvis

那么我该何去何从呢?
So where does this leave me?

我觉得我已尽力去表达敬意,但我终究是个白人MC
I feel like I pay dues, but I’ll always be a white MC

每当我写我自己的韵脚时我都会全力以赴
I give everything I have when I write a rhyme

可是终究改变不了这文化不属于我的这一现实
But that doesn’t change the fact that this culture’s not mine

[Pre-Chorus]
所以我会做我自己,请你也有自知之明
But I’m gonna be me, so please be who you are

这件事真的不难不需要很大力气
This is something that’s effortless and shouldn’t be hard

所以我会做我自己,请你也有自知之明
I said I’m gonna be me, so please be who you are

毕竟我们欠了他们四十亩地,现在还偷走了他们的16小节verse【南北战争时期Sherman将军曾承诺给予黑奴40亩土地,但最终食言;16小节是一段rap verse的标准长度】
But we still owe ’em 40 acres now we’ve stolen their 16 bars

[Chorus]
Hip-hop是在一个我从未去过的街区诞生的
Hip-hop started off on a block that I’ve never been to

Hip-hop的存在是为了面对一个我从未面对过的困境
To counteract a struggle that I’ve never even been through

如果就因为我会说唱就有资格不懂装懂
If I think I understand just because I flow too

那只能说明我完全没有keep it true
That means I’m not keeping it true, nope

Hip-hop是在一个我从未去过的街区诞生的
Hip-hop started off on a block that I’ve never been to

Hip-hop的存在是为了面对一个我从未面对过的困境
To counteract a struggle that I’ve never even been through

如果就因为我能说唱就有资格不懂装懂
If I think I understand just because I flow too

那只能说我完全没有keep it true
That means I’m not keeping it true, nope

[Verse 2]
我的歌从来不讨论关于枪支的事 他们说我很克制冷静
Now I don’t rap about guns, so they label me conscious

但事实上我不说是因为我从来没有过这样相关的经历
But I don’t rap about guns ’cause I wasn’t forced into the projects

看到了吗 在这样的情况下我还能选择自己的看法
See I was put in the position where I could choose my options

就是这样的特权让我父母可以安心送我去上大学
Blessed with the privilege that my parents could send me to college

现在都是哪些人来看演出 是街区那些挨饿的孩子们吗?
Now who’s going to shows, the kids on the block starving?

还是那些跟我能有共鸣的白人富小子?
Or the white people with dough that can relate to my content?

最开始是消费音乐 现在则是改变生活方式
Marketed the music, now adapted to the lifestyle

曾经在爵士乐和摇滚乐上发生过的事现在再次上演【爵士乐和摇滚乐均是黑人发明,白人带入主流,并最终进化为白人文化的生活方式】
What happened to jazz and rock and roll is happening right now

看看媒体们都在怎么来包装我的音乐
Where’s my place in the music that’s been taken by the media

对 就是那些白人掌权每天给你们洗脑的媒体
With white corporations controlling what they’re feedin’ ya?

我刚提到了Aesop Rock但我不是要Diss他 老兄
I brought up Aesop Rock, but I’m not even dissing, dude

我们就是爱Hip-hop 要不然你以为白人们都在听什么?【Caucasians原指欧洲裔的高加索人,现泛指白人】
We love hip-hop, and what do you think caucasians are listening to?

我在说这话的时候畅所欲言
And I speak freely when I write this

可是如果换成一个黑人MC来讨论白人听什么歌 那他一定会失去一半的粉丝 也就是所有白人粉丝
If a black emcee examined race, there goes half their fan base, white kids

这简直不能更现实了
And this is so true

说真的我们都不需要与这机制对抗 我们只需要拿起麦克风就好了
And we didn’t even have to fight the system, we just went and picked up the microphone too

因为我们从中获益所以我们或许该一直就这样说唱下去
And we got good at it so we should be rappin’

但是如果我们继续支持这机制那不正如同赞赏Eric Clapton的时否定Jimi Hendrix那般削足适履
But only supporting them is like burning Jimi and buying Clapton【此处指Jimi Hendrix和Eric Clapton,两人都是以吉他技巧著称的一代摇滚巨星】

当然了Clapton很棒,但是没有Jimi,就不会有这些后人的基础
Now Clapton’s incredible, but no Jimi, no foundation

所以这就是历史,这就是文化抄袭
So here comes history and the cultural appropriation

白人小孩们带个头巾开始模仿黑人的口音
White kids with do-rags trying to practice their accents

从乡下地方到上层社会,都想学会他们的黑话
From the suburbs to the upper-class, mastering a language

但Hip-hop可远不只是背下几个单词
But hip-hop is not just memorizing words

它是真实表达自我,这事你真学不来
It’s rooted in authenticity, something you literally can’t learn

[Pre-Chorus]
所以我会做我自己,请你也有自知之明
But I’m gonna be me, so please be who you are

这件事真的不难不需要很大力气
This is something that’s effortless and shouldn’t be hard

所以我会做我自己,请你也有自知之明
I said I’m gonna be me, so please be who you are

因为当我还在享受特权的时候,他们的伤疤还远未褪去
But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars

[Chorus]
Hip-hop是在一个我从未去过的街区诞生的
Hip-hop started off on a block that I’ve never been to

Hip-hop的存在是为了面对一个我从未面对过的困境
To counteract a struggle that I’ve never even been through

如果就因为我会说唱就有资格不懂装懂
If I think I understand just because I flow too

那只能说明我完全没有keep it true
That means I’m not keeping it true, nope

Hip-hop是在一个我从未去过的街区诞生的
Hip-hop started off on a block that I’ve never been to

Hip-hop的存在是为了面对一个我从未面对过的困境
To counteract a struggle that I’ve never even been through

如果就因为我能说唱就有资格不懂装懂
If I think I understand just because I flow too

那只能说我完全没有keep it true
That means I’m not keeping it true, nope
