performed by

A hip-hop song celebrating BLM. A sample of some Harpsichord and a groove from the first movement of my piece 'Hip-Hopsichord' as performed by Magdalena Stern-Baczewska with an addition fo a catchy chorus melody and a rap against racism.


Chorus lyrics:
What matters - the liberation of the people
What matters - for all of us to be free
What matters - that we are all created equal
What matters
I see my brothers and my sisters and i proudly take the knee

What matters to you man
What makes you human and
Do you feel empathy when you see injustice in your land

Ye, I'm talking to you
Are you a racist
I can see it in your eyes that you don't want to face this

It's at your front door now
Ye you America
The killing of too many black men, oh it's numerical

What matters is the systematic racism we see the
Police be practicing with deadly force on our population

Are you a bigot now
ye can you dig it wow

Do your opinions on different people
Align with the nazis, pow

For me, there's nothing in this world that's worse than a
Racist piece of shit with your dumb red hat
Makes me wanna spit and start the combat

I got my daggers out
It matters what you're about
Are we In tatters, is there really any doubt

Get your head out of your ass and
Join the protest make it fatter
Raise your voice and scream so proud
Black lives matter
