Macklemore & Ryan Lewis both delighted and stunned Hip-Hop fans with a performance of their hit “Same Love” at the 2014 Grammy Awards, which featured the nuptials of over 30 straight and gay couples. The song has become known as a pro-gay anthem, and Christian Hip-Hop rapper Bizzle offers a controversial response over the duo’s instrumental.
Bizzle wastes little time in getting to the meat of his message with “Same Love (A Response)” after opening with a Bible verse from the Second Book of Timothy.
“It’s funny how the media portrays things/They really pushing hard for this gay thing/And it’s so wicked how they manipulate things/Can’t even disagree without them making it a hate thing/I say you wrong, and you holler hate instantly/But you say we the ones who say who don’t tolerate differences/There’s a whole lot of things I can say really/But yo, hypocrisy is something I can paint vividly,” Bizzle raps.
The Los Angeles native continues his sonic criticism of the fight for gay rights, taking offense to the idea some advocates promote that their movement is similar in ways to the Civil Rights Movement. Bizzle also takes the entire homosexual lifestyle to task, even at one point comparing it to a sickness. Comments on Bizzle’s Soundcloud page have been largely positive, but there were some who took offense to his unrelenting assault.
The track is being offered as a free download on his website, God Over Money. His last album, The Good Fight, featured production from Boi-1da and guest appearances from Lecrae and No Malice.
