Lyrics Reflecting Criminalized Positionality of the Black Male (8)

“Udenfor” by MOLO

Stepz: Mørket kryber, bror, det’ koldt udenfor
Presser ud til grænsen – holdt udenfor
Stabler, men glemmer ikk’ folk sulter
Derfor, de slanger bli’r holdt udenfor

Gilli: Mørket kryber, bror – det’ koldt udenfor
Folk er sultne, de bli’r solgt udenfor
Folk er eksplosive – ikk’ fuser
Lak de’ ikk’ fuser, lak de’ ikk’ fuser
Helt tætpakket inde i bilen uden stop
Hele tiden pakket, fordi krigen vil ikk’ stop
Alle laver para, men der’ ingen, der har nok

 

Bimmer Ella Benza – Ham VolKan

“Hvis de ikke rammer millen i morgen, prøver de igen ugen efter/Imens de deler poser i gården, sidder drengene inde i Vestre” meaning “If they don’t get the mil tomorrow they’ll try again next week/While they are pushing bags in the yard, the boys are sitting inside Vestre.” “Vestre” refers to the biggest prison in Copenhagen.

 

Kbhavana – Sivas, excerpt from first verse:

Et par kilo gemt i kælderen (gemt nede i kælderen)

De schniger ind fra Marrakesh, yeah

Hva-hvad ska’ vi ellers lave? (herover)

Vi’ dem, der boozer for at glemme i mor’n

Hva-hvad ska’ vi ellers lave?(herover, tænd op, tænd op)

Mama, din søn er blevet en Rolling Stone

Tjener para i konflikt med loven

Kbhavana is a combination of København (Danish spelling of Copenhagen) and Havana. Havana is representing an exotic, urban, criminalized environment – one that Sivas experiences in Copenhagen at night. He depicts ‘his’ reality of Copenhagen with his comparison to the kind of reality he imagines in Havana

 

Ingen Kærlighed – Højer Øye 

Being excluded from society

Being ‘othered’

Simplistic, racialized, criminalized representation of non-western diaspora in Danish media

Burn the system –> anti-authority, anti-capitalist
