Rapper Releases Song Blasting ‘Wokeness’, Watched 3.7 million Times on YouTube, #1 on iTunes
Canadian rapper Tom MacDonald self-released a song last week entitled “Fake Woke.” Since its release, the music video posted to YouTube has garnered over 3.7 million views and counting and hit the top spot on iTunes’s all-genres chart. With numbers like that, one can only imagine the artist is doing something right.
So far, the rapper has been interviewed on Fox News’s The Story with Martha MacCallum as well as on Glenn Beck’s morning program.
In the song’s lyrics, MacDonald criticizes artists like Cardi B and Eminem for being role models – the former teaching young girls how to twerk and the latter rapping about gay bashing and murdering his mother.
MacDonald raps, “I think it's crazy I'm the one who they labeled as controversial / And Cardi B is the role model for twelve year old girls / There's rappers pushing Xanax at the top of the Billboard / But if I mention race in a song I'm scared I'll get killed for it / It's backwards, it's getting exponentially dumb / It's more difficult to get a job than purchase a gun / Eminem used to gay bash and murder his mom / And now he doesn't want fans if they voted for Trump”
He also bravely takes a stand against the Marxist BLM organization and white privilege rapping, "I think Black Lives Matter was the stupidest name / When the system screwing everyone exactly the same."
Some lines that also resonate with many are, “Segregation ended, that's a lie in itself / That was a strategy to make us think that we're trying to help / They knew that racism was hot if they designed it to sell / We buy up every single box and divide us ourselves / They so fake woke, facts don't care about feelings / They know they won't tell me what to believe in / They so fake woke, same old, safe zones / They so fake woke, facts don't care about your feelings.”
Talking about the song and video doesn’t do it justice – it’s a must-watch/listen...the 3.7 million on YouTube and additional numbers from iTunes should tell you so.
