In case you were wondering what it might have sounded like if The Vixen had nabbed a spot on RuPaul’s “American,” the drag star took to Instagram this week to give fans a little taste of her verse for the song.
In the clip, The Vixen delivers a few verses on racism, black exceptionalism and her fight with Eureka on Drag Race.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen The Vixen show off her rapping chops; she also rapped on Season 9 queen Shea Couleé’s “Cocky” track.
See the full lyrics below:
I’ve been protesting since the seventh grade
Cause financial aid ain’t ever paid
They build prisons just to set us straight
But ain’t got the funds to come educate
It was a godsend way back then
I learn social studies from a black man
Who was proud to tell me my history
was more than what this country done did to me
So fuck slave ships and assassinations
We invented shit, let’s get black to greatness
This woke shit be exasperating
And y’all shrug it off like I’m exaggerating
Fuck you expect from all this neglect
when the day you’re born you treated as a threat
And taught to live with the disrespect
Like getting first place and treated second-best
They move the finish line and say we overstep
And y’all still don’t get it yet
They poke at us, call it a test
Bitch, go have your cigarette
