He ain't give a fuck about me
He ain't give a fuck about you
He ain't give a fuck about we
So what the fuck we going to do?
The song again unites all bastards. One gets the feeling that Tyler might be working in a wider view of “bastard”, that includes all kinds of people abandoned by something
For instance, one could look at the bastard thing as another rendition of the age-old “hip-hop” metaphor. In Tyler’s case, hip-hop was his father, but around the time he was born, it started to abandon its true roots. When Tyler grew up he realized hip-hop didn’t speak to his kind anymore. He wanted great hip-hop albums, but only got ones he didn’t like. In spite of this, he became a rapper himself, got successful, and is taking hip-hop back to where it belongs: in the hands of angry black youth with something to say
Even if this metaphor doesn’t work for you, Tyler seems like the kind of artist that wants to send a message with his art — try to think of other metaphors he might be using
