John Rich joins anti-woke rapper Tom MacDonald for a brand new tune and video titled “Finish of the World,” and the clip is blowing up on-line simply in the future after its launch.
The tune, which a press launch describes as “apocalyptically infectious,” attracts from an extended sequence of up to date information occasions and fringe, conspiracy theory-tinged interpretations of different information occasions to weave a cautionary story about how the “finish time” depicted within the Bible is upon us and query how we acquired right here, and why. As of Saturday (March 18), the video for the tune had garnered 1,000,000 views on YouTube alone since its launch on Friday (March 17).
MacDonald’s rapid-fire rapping within the verses references UFOs, genocide, spreading viruses, droughts, wildfires and extra to color an exceptionally darkish view of the present state of affairs of the world. That offers strategy to a chorus during which Wealthy sings, “If it is the top of the world / I’ll do higher subsequent time / Oh yeah, I do know it / If it is the top of the world, I do know that I’ve lived my life to the fullest.”
“We stood on prime of mountains / We have been to area earlier than / We had our canines in homes / We dug up dinosaurs / We constructed these bombs they’re dropping / We fought in all their wars / Now that the sky is falling / What did we do it for?” Wealthy goes on to sing within the refrain.
The video is punctuated by fanciful pictures of UFOs hovering over main cities and rural areas, ready to take over as Wealthy finds rocks to throw at them and MacDonald flips them off. Intentionally (one hopes) corny graphics underscore the humor, but in addition would possibly are inclined to make it a bit tougher to take the meant message about “judgement day” and the approaching fall and extinction of the human race very significantly.
In line with the accompanying press launch, the purpose of the collaboration is to unite round genres to “lastly wake the f–k up.”
Wealthy and MacDonald turned to social media in a video explaining their collaboration:
MacDonald is a rapper, songwriter and former skilled wrestler who has gained consideration in recent times with a sequence of tracks skewering liberals, together with “Straight White Male,” “Pretend Woke,” “Snowflakes” and “Brainwashed.”
Wealthy is one-half of the celebrity nation duo Big & Rich, and the longtime conservative has change into increasingly more outspoken, making a sequence of media appearances to debate his views on the COVID pandemic, query the outcomes of the 2020 presidential election and extra. His most up-to-date single, “Progress,” featured the tag line, “Stick your progress the place the solar do not shine.”
