1. J-Zone presents… Miscegenation On Ya Station!: 10 Raps About Interracial Relationships.

    J-Zone_Miscegenation_on_ya_Station

    Ah! Mother Nature finally stopped fuckin’ around and delivered us some real late Spring weather here on the east coast – it’s officially mating season. But in the increasingly diverse yet oh so segregated Nouveau York, there’s so much to lust after: French vanilla, butter pecan, chocolate deluxe, caramel sundaes… but does the flavor one sticks his spoon in still matter? And furthermore, how can you tell if you fall in the “look but don’t touch” category? Kim Kardashian and Zach from Zebrahead we’re all not.

    Rap iconoclast Professor Griff asks, “What happened to the women who looked like my mama?!” The brothers he barbecues in this video obviously want no part of waking up to a Precious doppelganger (although many brothers have been spotted with a fat Kelly Osbourne doppelganger), but what does one do when presented with options? Let’s look at the Top 10 rap songs (and one honorable mention) to ever bumrush the subject of crashing a party on the other side of town and laying the pipe down and search for an answer. Yes, it gets interesting when love, lust, and race create a three car pile-up.

    10. Mighty Casey - "White Girls" (Busted Lip, 2001)

    STANCE: Pro

    A self-proclaimed “light-skinned Mandingo,” MC MC sparked a bit of buzz with this one. Showing love to the once off-limits Beckies, Caitlins, and Kellys, Casey bucks the long-reigning Nation of Islam-inspired hip-hop general consensus on the snow bunny. And he’s aiming high on the assimilation ladder – we’re talking Emily from Chappaqua here, not the white girl from Pelham Bay with the Wu tattoo. Although he admitted the song was a joke, Casey echoed a “Diary of a Tired Black Man”-esque sentiment that I’ve heard echo loudly through black barber shops in recent years: “Back in the day I was gettin’ no play, then I went the white girl way like OJ.”

    9. Kam - "Y'all Don't Hear Me Dough" (EastWest, 1992)

    STANCE: Anti

    Aha! The age old metaphorical rap correlation between pork and white women! Both are supposed to be signs of American success and happiness. But if you’re black, both are supposed to be bad for you. Selling out and ending up in Ice Cube’s trunk next to a box of bean pies or raising your blood pressure and cholesterol at Sunday morning breakfast after praying to a blonde Jesus – take your pick. Kam, a member of the N.O.I., puts bigoted cops, Becky, and bacon in one big Hefty bag and throws ‘em down the incinerator. (Miscegenation conversation starts at the 1:04 mark.) Songs like these are rare in 2012, but at the tail end of the pro-black rap movement’s tenure as a major faction of hip-hop, “pork is the white man and the white man is PORK!” (to quote Allen Payne in CB4.) Nowadays, white girls are a euphemism for cocaine. Movin on’ up!

    8. Y’all So Stupid - "Dirt Road White Girl" (Rowdy, 1993)

    STANCE: Pro, but don’t be an idiot.

    Like many of us, the ‘93 quartet from Atlanta knew white girls who wore colossal, Nefertiti earrings and Black Bart Simpson t-shirts. There’s something maladroit about Katie Sue rocking an Africa continent-shaped nose ring, but at least she gave the few brothers and Hispanic cats in school some poo-tang when their own women told ‘em to go fuck themselves. You were brimming with anticipation when then the hook for Wu-Tang’s “Shame On A Nigga” came on the boom box and Katie Sue had been rapping along word for word, but if she dropped an n-bomb during sex, you didn’t trip. You gave her an extra hard stroke for her great great granddaddy being a punk-ass slave-ownin’ ofay, splashed on her parents’ duvet cover and snuck out the kitchen door. Your window of opportunity closed when she went to law school in her late 20s.

    7. Cooly Live - "No Cream In My Coffee" (RCA, 1992)

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


    STANCE: Anti, but not angry.

    As mentioned in my post dedicated to good rap albums with poor covers, Cooly chimes in to let the audience know that Jungle Fever better back up off him. Not that it’s wrong, it’s just not Cooly. After all, he doesn’t know much about matzah so how can we expect him to register on jdate.com and be the token brother?

    6. Tweedy Bird Loc - "My Dicc is Prejudice" (Dangerous, 1994)

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


    STANCE: Anti. Very anti.

    Tweedy doesn’t like anything white. That includes paper because there’s no way he didn’t freestyle this shit. As mentioned in my Rap Controversy post, “My Dicc Is Prejudice” and its sequel (which total 8:18 of sonic vitriol towards interracial dating) still stand as inflammatory anathema to colorblind pimpin’.

    5. Sinister - "Mr. Dick" (Interscope, 1994)

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


    STANCE: Pro

    Cali’s Sinista has since passed on (R.I.P.), but he made a hell of a mark for interracial sex in his tenure on the third stone from the sun. Sinista appreciates the skill sets and attributes of all women and even finds tiny Caucasian lips sexy, sultry, slutty, and serviceable.

    4. Public Enemy - "Pollywanacracka" (Def Jam, 1990)

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


    STANCE: Acceptance

    Chuck D rapping in a conversational tone is priceless, but the frontman of the all-time greatest rap militia gets the most points for throwing a curveball – he promotes acceptance for black folks who wish to do a lil’ dippin’ on the other side. Brilliantly pan-mixed pontificating from black women and men are sandwiched between Chuck’s calm voice of reason, making this the least biased and most level-headed tune of the pack.

    3. Ice Cube - "Cave Bitch" (Priority, 1993)

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


    STANCE: Anti

    Mr. Jackson lets us know his dick is prejudiced, but you can be a fan if you wish, Pippi Longstocking. Damn Cube, even if she employs the the Stairmaster and can burn the shit out of some collard greens? Oh well. The intro from Dr. Khalid Muhammad kills any inkling of a chance of Paris Hilton getting a piping and his words cut like a rusty, AIDS-infected bayonet. Yeah, Cube would “rather fuck an albino.” I don’t know any albinos who look better than Alyssa Milano, but whatever.

    2. The Juggaknots - "Clear Blue Skies" (Fondle 'Em, 1996)

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.


    STANCE: None

    Breeze Brewin is probably the most underrated MC of the last 15 years and this song is partly why. By far the most creative approach to the subject, “Clear Blue Skies” sees the Baby Boomer redneck dad and the Generation X son with the black girlfriend butt heads. Recorded in ‘95, the record is still relevant today. Obama may have given you insight on how to flip your NCAA brackets, but his tenure as prez doesn’t mean it’s that much easier to be Flipper and Angie today, especially when the families get involved.

    1. Too Much Trouble - "We Want Pussy" (Rap-A-Lot, 1993)

    STANCE: Pro

    It’s ironic that the most ignorant and misogynist song of the bunch is also the most sensible. Houston’s TMT are down with a Rainbow Ho-alition, yes, Roy G. Biv. They “ain’t colorstruck,” they “just wanna fuck.” Don’t we all? Summer’s upon us, everyone is looking their best, stop thinking about what’s ideal for your future. It’s all about putting the pipe down and we’re not talking drug rehab. Look at TMT – so ign’ant, yet so smart and the knowledge starts gettin’ dropped at the 1:47 mark:

    “Ain’t nuthin like black pussy on my dick, but I’ll be damned if I don’t fuck me a white bitch.”

    “Or them long blonde-headed cock…snows, I don’t discriminate, I fuck all type of hoes.”

    “Fuckin’ Mexicans and them flat-booty J.A.P.s, I like them Senorita bitches lookin’ very mean, fit pussy sittin’ all fat in them jeans.”

    “I fuck Oriental sideways ‘cause they pussy slant.”

    And making sure to never allow the sugar walls to supercede the sugar dollar, TMT sprays pimpology: “I love the way pussy make me feel, I also love the way the pussy pay the bills.”

    And if you’re offended by the crass racial stereotypes, I ask ya: How much dating / sexual diversity have YOU pursued in YOUR lifetime? Not as much as TMT and I’ll bet the house on that.

    Honorable Mention: Del the Funkee Homosapien - "Dark-Skinned Girls"

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

    STANCE: Anti, but some contradictory behavior neutralizes it.

    This doesn’t explore the joys or perils of dipping in the other pool (thus it can’t technically make the list), but it stands tall in the pantheon of race-related love songs. Why? Because beautiful dark-skinned sistas weren’t getting their props at the time. (The time being the Al B. Sure / Babyface era, when Jasmine Guy and Karyn Parsons were the shit and niggas like Ice-T and I were winning, even without having to use baby oil in our hair.) That alone makes this joint a classic, but it’s also divisive for black women and it came back to bite Del years later. (He stated in The Source that his girlfriend was white. Yes, after he rapped “if your titties is pink, then you are white and I’m not the right man.”) Can’t drop the hypocrite hammer on Del, though. In the words of Richard Pryor, “some mean pussy can make a man change gods.” Religions, races, same shit.


    The verdict

    We’re not as liberal and accepting a society as we think (register on a dating site and approach all creeds and colors with reckless abandon if you disagree), but get it however you can! Enough palaver about what’s right or wrong, just doowhatchalike (what up, Humpty?). You’ll feel better about yourself when your window of time for mass miscegenation closes.


  2. You might wanna peep...

    • faux_rillz

      Great post.

      Another possible honorable mention: Hard Knocks’ classic “Ni**a for Hire,” in which the narrator questions the racial bona fides of his paramour (“When we got together I felt like I was race-mixin’”) and recounts a visit with her parents:

      She took me home to meet her folks
      Right away pops quoted corny sh*t Shakespeare wrote
      Mom sits down to the table…
      And gives me a autographed picture of Clark Gable?

    • Richard Carpenter

      Murs did a song called Dark Skinned White Girls, on his (and 9th Wonder’s) Murray’s Revenge album. It pretty much empowers girls/women who are either hated on for how they look (racially) and comforts those who may not “fit in” with racial stereotypes. Also, Shock G did a concept album called Fear of a Mixed Planet, where he’s pretty much pro-interracial dating and racial harmony period. And that’s the way it should be, even in dating situations.

      No “Veronica” by Onyx? Lord Sear’s “My Hindu Love”? Great post. About 3 of these jawns I’ve never even heard of before…

      One.

    • D3Keith

      I have that Hard Knocks joint on 12-inch. I remember I thought I was so underground and no one else had it, and then I see this dude standing in the hallway at school with it in his hand saying he’s going to rap over the beat. Crushed.

      You picked the perfect quote, faux. J-Zone, If you ever do a top 10 police brutality songs, that deserves consideration under the “black po-lice showin’ out for the white cop” classifcation.

      Sick list!

      The beginning of Cave Bitch is EPIC. Racist, but epic.

      Strangely enough, I was just talking about Y’all So Stupid the other day.
      Back when we were kids, me and my boys used to always see the album cover and think “Van Full Of Pakistans” was the group name and Y’all So Stupid was the band name.
      (Ever since then I always thought “Van Full Of Pakistans” would be a sick-ass nickname for one big-ass dude, like an East Indian bodyguard or some shit.)

      I got one to add to honourably mention: “KKK Bitch” by Body Count. Not a rap song per se, but it is Ice-T. And it’s fuckin’ hilarious!

      Peace!

      Sincerely,
      Van Full of Pakistans

      Faux, D3: That Hard Knocks album is unbelievable. The beats were dope and Hardhead (the MC) was a really good writer/storytelller. 10 of the 12 joints were concepts and even the 2 battle rhymes had some structure, which was even rare then. Dart, I didn’t realize Veronica was race-related, haha. Ain’t heard it in years. Nuv, I agree on YSS. They were in the same vein as the Pharcyde, I actually liked YSS better. But the group name and the album title probably threw people off. The beats on that album were insane. Shouts to my boys Spearhead X and Majesty.

    • oskamadison

      Yo Zone when I saw this post, the first thing I thought was “I know he got that Juggaknots joint on there” and you didn’t disappoint. “Breeze Brewin’ is probably the most underrated MC of the last 15 years…” Yes and no. Not enough people knew him for him to be underrated but the ones who did didn’t give him enough props. Sadly, the only place I ever heard dude was on the “Stretch and Bobbito” show back in the day. Anyway, another banger!!!

    • http://review2akill.com Nuv

      J-Zone,

      I vaguely remembered one of my friends getting YSS way back and thinking it sounded pretty good, but I never copped it myself. Well, based on your recommendation I actually managed to track it down and…
      IT’S F***IN’ BONKERS!!!
      Sick,right from the intro! I still like Pharcyde better, but they’re definitely same ballpark. Either way, I can’t stop listening to it!
      Good lookin’ out!

    • http://govillaingo.com J-Zone

      Nuv – Indeed! Y’all So Stupid and Da King & I dropped on the same label (Rowdy) the same summer. Both exceptionally well-produced albums that got lost in the sauce. And YSS always reminded me of the Pharcyde with their vibe, but a little more rugged. Either way, glad it’s being appreciated 20 years later. And Oska – I’m working on some new music with Breeze now. He’s still got it, despite taking long hiatuses throughout his career.
