If nothing else, you can always count on K. Michelle to tell us how she really feels. Her new song, “Kim K,” is poised to start quite the firestorm, and I’m honestly here for it.
“Kim K” is the newest promo track from her upcoming LP, Kimberly: The People I Used to Know. The song itself addresses the Kardashian clan’s tendency to swipe up decades-long African-American cultural trends to pass off as their own. Not only is it timely, it’s downright scathing in its honesty.
Some of the lyrics that explicitly call out the Kardashians are:
“Wish I could be a Kardashian so I could be black. They ask if it’s real. I say it’s real fat. Don’t get caught up in facts, cuz ain’t sh*t real. And ain’t sh*t funny. So f**k how you feel.”
“Wish I could be a Kardashian, so I could be black. Put my face over ‘Pac. Wear my braids to the back. Throw a filter on that, cuz ain’t sh*t real. And ain’t sh*t funny. So f**k how you feel.”
Oh geez! Of course, her little “song monologue” doesn’t stop there. She also has a few choice words for black women who don’t support her efforts to woo actor Idris Elba.
“What’s up with all you black women? I date a black man named Idris. You say I’m ghetto, he trippin. You’d rather him with white women.”
Chile…there is clearly a lot going on here. Wanting to hear the song in full? Catch the tea below, sugars.
