They say I act white, but sound black, but act black
But sound white, but what's my sound bite supposed to sound like?
I think I sound aight, I sound tight

from Das Racist (Ft. El-P) – Shut Up, Man Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Heems doesn’t act like a gangster or any kind of thug. However, he raps, and he uses slang and speaks from a street background, so he sounds kinda “black.”

To the people who judge him:
What else is Heems supposed to sound like? like, what did you expect? There’s no way he could act black and sound white.

Heems is fine with his voice. it not bad, its aight. it’s tight.
