Decided to rewatch Get Out this morning, and I’m completely stunned that the rap Will Smith performed over the closing credits wasn’t somehow enough to win it Best Picture. Crazy.
So my girlfriend took me to meet her mom and dad
But deep in my stomach was this feeling I had
I mean, yeah their fancy crib was tight, but something just wasn’t right
Oh, and did I mention– they’re white? (Uh oh)
They were polite, but it still made me squirm
When her dad told me he wanted Obama for a third term
And then I had a nightmare, it was wack–
I dreamt that I was sunken and my body got jacked!
The next day, as I was walkin’ about
I took a picture of this strange-talking brother, he started yellin’–
I looked at him like “chill man, ya buggin’”
They took him to a room and he came out like it was nothin’!
It was so freaky that I wanted to leave
I said “girl we gotta dip” but she was hidin’ the keys
Then they sunk me– man, it wasn’t a dream!
I ain’t sticking around the next time somebody screams–
A mind is a terrible thing to waste!
And white folks are wanting mine replaced!
So pay attention if a brother is with ya
sayin “La La Land was robbed for Best Picture”
No it wasn’t, (GET OUT!)
Try to help ‘em, flash a light in their eyes!
Keep a phone charger on you at all times
Look alive, man, you can’t let ‘em sneak up
And stay away from white ladies’ tea cups
You gotta get out! (GET OUT
I busted outta the house, heading for town
And we don’t need no water, I burned that mother down
Last minute, somebody saved the day
It was my good friend Rod from the TSA
(I told you not to go in that house)
Back home, I tried to decompress
When I got a sudden visit from DJ Jazzy Jeff
I told him what had happened, he said “man that’s downright evil…”
“But I hope you know, Prince– that’s not ALL white people”
He made me nervous when he said “most are good”
And then “I would’ve stopped THREE white families if I could”
Well, now I’m thinking Jeff’s a white man in disguise!
So I reached for my phone and put the flash in his eyes
He said “Prince, stop wiggin, man, it’s me
None of that happen– you fell asleep watchin TV!”
Aw man, it was a dream? That’s funky
That I could dream a parable for the commodification of blackness in our country !
That made me feel straight crazy, yo!
No more dozing off to HBO
Why’d I think I was dating white?
I’ve been married to Jada for almost half of my life!
I will say though, that dream was the bomb!
They’d probably give it like… four Oscar noms!
Jeff is crazy, but I think even he’d say
It’d definitely win Original Screenplay
I’m just guessin!
