I hit him with a piece of his philosophy Anglo-Saxon muck in his type of greed What did he do to deserve such hate He tried to intellectualise my blackness
He tried to summarise, to institutionalise Still I could recognise, he was materialised
He tried to intellectualise my blackness
To make it easier for his whiteness
He tried to intellectualise my blackness, ooh save me
He's always tryin' to make up for his little slips
The joke about the nigga and the yellow nip
Then he tells me I'm so different from those other shits When he tries to intellectualise my blackness
He tried to summarise, to institutionalise
Still I could recognise, he was materialised
He tried to intellectualise my blackness
To make it easier for his whiteness
He tried to intellectualise my blackness, ooh save me
Motherfucker don't you lecture-rise me Don't you ever try to intellectualise me Motherfucker don't you intellectualise me Oh No
He tried to intellectualise my blackness
To make it easier for his whiteness
He tried to intellectualise my blackness, ooh save me
He tried to intellectualise my blackness
To make it easier for his whiteness
He tried to intellectualise my blackness, ooh save me
He tried to intellectualise my blackness
To make it easier for his whiteness
He tried to intellectualise my blackness, ooh save me

    General CommentThis sounds like it was very much based on personal experiences. I wonder who she is singing about?

    General CommentI've been through this myself. This song seems to be about a person who is being fetishized. The partner is material-wants another notch on their belt. They try to make up for it by intellectualizing their partner. Saying they're not like the rest of the people from their social class. And she is calling them out for it.
