Blessings to Paul McCartney
Paul McCartney, the famed co-frontman and bassist of The Beatles, continues to make music. His 2012 album, called Kisses on the Bottom, is primarily composed of covers of songs he grew up with — and he released an album of new material, New, in 2013.
McCartney is officially Sir Paul McCartney because he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. Thus, the mention of McCartney here ties into both the mention of the monarchy right before and to the “black Beatle” line immediately afterwards. Furthermore, like The Beatles, the Black Hippy clique (Kendrick, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock) and consists of four members. The Beatles were an inspiration for the original hippy movement in the 60s.
