Kendrick Lamar’s Verse On “Blacker The Berry” Rewritten The South African Way #StopXenophobia

08 May


We might just be the biggest hypocrites of 2015
once I finish this, South Africans will convey just what I mean

Thinking maliciously, if he come to my hood ima burn him
It’s sad how when you seeked refuge they let you in

It’s funny how 2 former cadres might go to war
Two political leaders that want to enrich and defraud
Reminds me of these fat cats that go to parliament and sleep
Beefing with each other, only ‘point of order’ settle the score…

So don’t matter how much I say I like maintaining Mandela’s legacy
Or tell all the scholars “Thabo Mbeki got all the answers”
Or Vote for ANC coz they the fathers of freedom
Or raise income taxes and and tell you to get an e-tag

Or celebrate Chad Le Clos because I’m a big fan of swimming
Or dive deep enough to land in the president’s fire pool
Or buy a new Beamer that will lead me to debt
So why did I build a compound when my people were starving?
When tribalism and ignorance made me kill a brother as African as me?



Below see thee original verse on Kendrick Lamar’s ‘The Blacker The Berry’ 

verse starts at 04:15


I’m the biggest hypocrite of 2015

When I finish this if you listenin’ sure you will agree

This plot is bigger than me, it’s generational hatred
It’s genocism, it’s grimy, little justification
I’m African-American, I’m African
I’m black as the heart of a fuckin’ Aryan
I’m black as the name of Tyrone and Darius
Excuse my French but fuck you — no, fuck y’all
That’s as blunt as it gets, I know you hate me, don’t you?
You hate my people, I can tell cause it’s threats when I see you
I can tell cause your ways deceitful
Know I can tell because you’re in love with that Desert Eagle

Thinkin’ maliciously, he get a chain then you gone bleed him
It’s funny how Zulu and Xhosa might go to war
Two tribal armies that want to build and destroy
Remind me of these Compton Crip gangs that live next door
Beefin’ with Piru’s, only death settle the score
So don’t matter how much I say I like to preach with the Panthers
Or tell Georgia State “Marcus Garvey got all the answers”
Or try to celebrate February like it’s my B-Day
Or eat watermelon, chicken, and Kool-Aid on weekdays
Or jump high enough to get Michael Jordan endorsements
Or watch BET cause urban support is important
So why did I weep when Trayvon Martin was in the street?
When gang banging make me kill a nigga blacker than me?
