Ain’t a black boy but still the flow’s so Bashy
Splurge's official lyric explanation
Well, obviously Bashy's name is Bashy. But then that was...
Bashy to me... bashy meant wicked.
Bashy back then was like a word and it was a bit of a word for, like, yeah... then again I can't even remember saying that was bashy. But you did actually say that. That's what it meant really, innit, like?
Yeah. That's sick... wicked sick, good.
Yeah, that's sick. So. it's like the first all Bashy - you see what I'm saying? And he, obviously, had a tune called Black Boys. So it... which, kind of, ostracized anyone that weren't black, really. Like, do you know what I mean? It's like it was a song for black boys. Taking power of black boys.
But as a mixed race person, you didn't mean you. But, then, to certain people, it did mean you. So, it was a bit ambiguous at the time. Like race is, always is sometimes as a... being half and... mixed race. Like you do, no matter what and you want... everyone wants to see, sometimes, come in those little scenarios where it's like... does that one include me, like? I don't know, like. Do you want me to...
I'm not black... and I'm not white.
Yeah... do you know what... because I swear it was... yeah, it's like... I swear Akala was in the remix to that, weren't he? Didn't Akala do a remix? But, like, I don't even know if I could because that would be saying I'm not that. So, it was just like I'm not a black boy really and truly in my heart of hearts because I am, actually, half white. So it's like... but the flow was bashy.
So, yeah, that was the lyric.
