Is this real life? Brad Paisley has teamed up with LL Cool J on his latest track "Accidental Racist." The pairing is odd, but that's not even the bizarre part. On the song Paisley defends wearing his confederate flag t-shirt and asks for some understanding singing, "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.”
While Paisley is taking the majority of the heat in the press, LL's contribution is not any better. "If you don't judge my gold chains / I'll forget the iron chains."
In addition to the absurdity of the song's lyrics,"Accidental Racist" is an abysmal song. It's borderline unlistenable. View some more choice lyrics and listen if you dare below. [Via: OKP]
"I try to put myself in your shoes and that's a good place to begin / But it ain't like I can walk a mile in someone else's skin."
"Dear Mr. White Man, I wish you understood
What the world is really like when you're livin' in the hood."
"If you don't judge my du-rag / I won't judge your red flag."
"RIP Robert E. Lee but I've gotta thank Abraham Lincoln for freeing me, know what I mean."
