The SCOOP With The Hip-Hop Socialite: Chrisette Michele Responds To Inauguration Backlash With Poetry Album
In response to the backlash stemming from her performance at the inauguration of Donald Trump, Chrisette Michele makes an effort to create a conversation in chaos with a poetry album she entitled with her infamously coined phrase, “No Political Genius”.
“I am the black song Spike Lee won’t sing/I am the black voice inauguration bells ring/I am the black sheep disguising the scared wolf/I am the black elephant in the red room scared shook. The White House invites me, you call me their coon/I am the butterfly growing from history’s cocoon/I can carry the mantle with God as my goon/He provides the life support, I’m dying singing his tune,” she rhymes.
Take a listen to the first installment from the project, “Still American”.
