We’re Not So Different, You and I

My series of ebonics translations of rap music songs has been overwhelmingly popular. No one has ever done this before, and it would presumably be politically incorrect for anyone to actually talk about what is said in rap music songs (unless it is against gays).

Earlier this week, it was noted that an ancient Greek poem that is being censored by feminists reads a lot like a rap song.

In light of this, I’ve been considering other important analyses I can do of black culture that would not be allowed in really any other publication.

This led me to considering the lyrics to Gucci Mane’s recent Christmas song “All I Want for Christmas.”

Listening to it, I realized – we are not so different, you and I, Gucci Mane.

A series of select lyrics from the song, alongside my own images, should illustrate this point.

All I want for Christmas is my Glock with the extension

A handgun with some monkey nuts, that’s all I want for Christmas

All I want for Christmas is a couple niggas missin’

A big ol’ bag of firearms and plenty ammunition

Free my niggas out the system, all I want for Christmas

Can’t fall victim to pussy niggas, never catch me slippin’

OG just did twenty years, they didn’t even see him on Christmas

Worst feelin’ in the world, bein’ locked up on Christmas

So you see, we’re not so different, you and I.
