These interviews are obnoxious
Saying that "It’s poetry, you’re so well spoken," stop it
Mack is referring to interviews in which the interviewer refers to his lyric as “true poetry”, placing it ahead of other forms of Hip Hop as far as value. He finds this offensive because he doesn’t see himself as better than other rappers.
This also establishes what becomes the theme of this whole verse: the tension he feels as a white rapper in a mostly black genre, the tension that he references later between feeling white privilege and white guilt. Here he is suggesting that a lot of those interviewers might be subtly discriminating, subtly critiquing the rappers who aren’t as “well spoken” as this white rapper, and he’s saying it pisses him off when they ask him questions that put him in a position to accept the praise of being “well spoken.”
