K. Michelle gives no f*cks as she speaks her truth on the socially-charged new offering, “Kim K,” a record that harps on the privileges of other races in comparison to African-Americans, especially black women. The raw and painstaking song is not a hostile letter against white people, instead, it highlights the obstacles that black women are up against, even with their own race.
“Wuzzup with all you black women? / I date a black man named Idris / You say ‘[I’m] ghetto, he trippin,'” she sings. “You’d rather him with white women / How you don’t like me, no / When you just like me, oh!”
She later adds on the chorus: “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 ’cause ain’t shit real / And ain’t shit funny, so fuck how you feel!”
K. Michelle’s much-anticipated upcoming fourth studio album, ‘Kimberly: The People I Used To Know,’ the follow-up to 2016’s ‘More Issues Than Vogue,’ is due out December 5th. The 21-track LP is pegged as one of K. Michelle’s “most intimate projects yet, as she dives deeper into her personal journey and those who have impacted it along the way.”
