Straight Pride Parade

By orangedrink on February 18, 2018 11:14 pm

Yung Grandpa back for more!  This beat was created on the OP-1.  Is the kick drum too boomy?  I feel pretty nervous about the content of this rap since it is a little "political".  But, I feel pretty passionate about it and I think the key to hip-hop is telling your personal story AKA keepin' it real.  Shoutout the the LGBT crew and the straight allies.  Hope you enjoy.  BARS.


Lyrics:


It’s Yung Grandpa!


Yung Grandpa all up in the building
Everybody gather round, men, women, and children
Non-binary crew don’t think i forgot you
Y’all are my people and I’m one of you


Ain’t nobody rapping on the topic
Homophobia: so how we gonna stop it?
Queer kids blowing up the suicide hotline
I didn’t think i’d see legal marriage in my lifetime


¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Why isn’t there a straight pride parade? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Uh, yeah there is one, it happens every day
Ever walk, holding hands, without fearing for your life?
Ever not lose a job for acknowledging your wife?        


So many years playing straight, I should have been an actress
Got pics of your dad underneath the mattress
I’m making jokes but you know it isn’t funny
I’m keeping it real; i don’t know what you want from me


It’s Yung Grandpa!

Hell Yeah! Your message is sexy and funky as hell! heart

Definitely gotta keep your message true.  It's totally hip-hop to say "fuck the haters" anyway.  The beat is super sick on this one.

That Beat is cool!
sic flow... oldschool as hell love it!
Lyrics are really good!
And i agree ... key to rap is the story and it should be political.
And with stories like this i offer you every single one of my beats... indeed i would be proud.

I agree.  It is nerve wracking, but I feel like I would be making a mockery of hip-hop if I didn't "keep it real"
