Mac Lethal - Turning into My Father lyrics


ad
(Knock knock, open up)

What's this music that you're listening to
What's the name of it, XXXTentacion?
Fun, no, no
You're not in trouble, relax
I just wanna have a conversation with you 'cause you're my son
For the last hour I was in my room making a call
And I could hear this loud-ass bass shaking the wall
And his lyrics? He sounds like a psycho that's depressive
Why's there so much anger and violence in his message?
I just don't understand people your age
All you care about is sex and drugs and pure rage
My generation wasn't like that
You had to be a poet with talent in order to write raps
I just googled this kid on my phone to read about him
My god, I'm reading lots of scary things about him
Have you heard about the terrible things he does to women
And how he had to do time in prison? Listen
I understand that you wanna be cool
And you don't want to be the dork when you walk around school
But listening to him is a terrible influence
And when I was your age, I swear I wouldn't do it
Smarten up, find therapy in music
It's even better if your parents can approve it
Trust me, I didn't have a dad
That was cool enough to tell me when my music was bad

Wait, wait, dad, stop
My favorite rapper died today
You don't need to preach to me, man, I'm okay
I get it, you think that I'm hostile and queer
I get it, you think that my culture is weird
I get it, you think that my music isn't smart
I get it, you think I'm depressed and I'm dark
I get it, you think it sucks, you hate the beats
Now let me listen to it in peace, please

(Please)

(I'm just saying that my music was, you know
See, this XXXTentacion guy, we didn't have
We had, like, 2Pac and, and actual talented, you know
People with perspectives
And poets and stuff like that)

What's this music that you're listening to
What's the name of it, Tupac Shakur?
Okay, that's fun, no, no
Relax, you're not in trouble
I just want to have a conversation with you right now 'cause you're my son
For the last hour I was in my room making a call
And I could hear this loud-ass bass shaking the wall
And his lyrics? He sounds like a psycho that's depressive
Why's there so much anger and violence in his message?
I just don't understand people your age
All you care about is sex and drugs and pure rage
My generation wasn't stupid
You had to be a talented artist if you wanted to make music
I just opened the newspaper to read about him
My god, I'm reading all these scary things about him
Have you heard about the terrible things he does to women
And how he had to do time in prison? Listen
I understand that you wanna be cool
And you don't want to be the dork when you walk around school
But listening to him is a terrible influence
And when I was your age, I swear I wouldn't do it
Man, try to find therapy in music
And maybe I could play you what your parents used to groove with
Johnny Cash didn't sing about killing
He didn't care about doing drugs and screwing women

Wait, dad, stop
My favorite rapper died today
You don't need to preach to me now, I'm okay
I get it, you think that I'm hostile, it's clear
I get it, you think that my culture is weird
I get it, you think that my music isn't smart
I get it, you think that I'm depressed and dark
I get it, you don't understand rap beats
Now let me listen to it in peace, please
