Robin Thicke + Nas sono “Deep”

Robin Thicke, cantante e compositore statunitense si avvale della collaborazione di Nasir Jones AKA NAS per il suo nuovo singolo “Deep”.

Il brano è l’anticipazione di quello che sarà il prossimo disco di Thicke dal titolo (presunto) Morning Sun”.

Qui sotto le barre di NAS (la prima completamente accappella), che aiutano a rendere il pezzo (a mio parere un po’ troppo soft per il titolo che porta) decisamente più profondo.

“White man with a gun apprehended, he still alive /
Black man with a gun, he has no chance to survive /
They gon’ shoot him dead soon as they see the brown of his eyes /
And they ask me, “Why you ain’t smilin’ Nas?”
Cause I have a son and I die inside when I gotta tell him what was told to me 
Can’t play with your water gun son ’cause the police see /
A seven years old as a threat /
They think it’s right to kill a seven years old on sight ’cause he ain’t white /
So baby if I’m actin’ uptight /
When our conversation is weak, it ain’t you /
It’s just it ain’t that deep”

“And any day when you don’t get your way /
Gettin’ mad at everything I say /
And you don’t think it’s an emergency /
A toupee wearin’ liar’s tryna run the U.S.A /
You makin’ our lives harder, you’re like the argument queen /
There’s women out here going hard doing positive things /
Slam dunkin’ in games, directing movies like Selma /
World’s startin’ to change and you actin’ the same /
‘Cause you don’t even see what I see in you /
Next female president could even be you”.
