With the release of his nine minute epic White Privilege II, white-skinned artist Macklemore has solidified his reputation as a true genius according to critics, though they are quick to correct people who think that means they’re saying he’s a good rapper.
“He’s a shit rapper – but he’s a genius appropriator. This takes Macklemore White Privilege to dizzying new heights!”
The song, in which Macklemore ponders his role in the #BlackLivesMatter movement, is already being hailed a masterpiece of the form.
“Whether intentional or not, this is a groundbreaking step in the art of appropriation – namely appropriating the anger of those who’s music has been appropriated.”
Cultural historians couldn’t be more excited about this latest development, which is already being termed ‘meta-propriation’.
“With people are talented as Macklemore around, it’s a shame there aren’t more cultures to appropriate.”
When asked what could be the next meta-ist evolution, they speculate it will take the form of some white dude with a platform appropriating the discussion of Macklemore’s appropriation of black anger at the appropriation of black music.
