Recently, Ryan Lewis and Macklemore have just launched a 9-minute song with the collaboration of each other and the theme depicts about the white privilege. It is one of the new video songs of their upcoming album, ‘This Unruly Mess I’ve Made’.
The most anticipated ‘White privilege II’ features the enthralling personalities including Jamila Woods, who explores the bigotry, diverse cultures and its appropriation, utopian era and the Black Lives Matter movement as well. While calling out Iggy Azalea and Miley Cyrus, Macklemore hit them by adding, “You’ve exploited and stolen the music, the moment. The magic, the passion, the fashion you toyed with. The culture was never yours to make better. You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea.”
He then asked about that “We take all we want from black culture. But will show up for black lives?” For this question, he answered by exploring his own prviliege, “My success is the product of the same system that let off Darren Wilson.”
He also released his statement via his soundtrack, “This song is the outcome of an ongoing dialogue with musicians, activists, and teachers within our community in Seattle and beyond. Their work and engagement was essential to the creative process.”
He had also exposed his working updates that both Ryan Mewis LLC and Macklemore are working together as a company with other four organizations in order to support ‘black-led organizing and anti-racist education & discourse’.
This song is the sequel of the former ‘white privilege’ that was released in 2005 with the title, ‘The Language of My World’.
