Spotify, Soundcloud boot rapper’s song ‘Safe Space’ that goes WAY off the leftist narrative

The Spotify and SoundCloud music (and talk) hosting platforms have reportedly censored the new rap song “Safe Space” which contains controversial lyrics that run counter to the social justice narrative.

The politically incorrect but profanity-free rap from Bryson Gray and Patriot J sets the table with the opening libretto “They might ban me for this song, but this is how I’m rocking. Can’t be trans ’cause it ain’t real, they need a mental asylum.” Later in the approximately three-minute presentation, the rappers insist that “it’s only two genders, boy and girl, keep it simple…”

The rap, which is currently still available on YouTube in two versions, also chides — among various other targets — Joe (“ain’t the real president”) Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, multiculturalism, cross-dressing, and Don Lemon.

“If you like BLM, and you watch CNN, then you brain dead, prolly wear a mask in the bed,” the rappers say.

The song, which serves to reject the whole concept of safe spaces, and which is part of Gray’s new album “Bold As a Lion: Season 1,” also calls out vote fraud and open borders. As noted above, the song at several points also defiantly foreshadows the possibility that liberals might ban it.

On Twitter, Bryson Gray posted a message purportedly from the Soundcloud Trust & Safety Team that implies that the song was taken down for “incitement to hatred” in violation of the platform’s terms of use. “Wow. Censorship is real,” Gray noted.

Earlier, he also shared a tweet suggesting that Spotify gave no reason for its ban.

Collaborating artist Patriot J also chimed in on social media, including this tweet:

“The ban just shines a spotlight on how far Big Tech is willing to take their censorship of dissenting views. Spotify and SoundCloud don’t actually care about allegedly ‘hateful’ or ‘violent’ songs being on their platform, because if that were the case, they’d have taken down almost all of the popular rap songs on their platforms,” Patriot J told Breitbart News.

“We were silenced for being brave enough to go against the radical left agenda, and now we’re paying the price. Just another day in Joe Biden’s America!”

Patriot J may have been alluding to the fact that rap, which is in wide distribution in the culture, is typically loaded up with misogynistic lyrics and violent rhetoric, along with mass quantities of F-bombs and other vulgarities.

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) praised the duo on Twitter: “These guys…are deep in the culture war and taking incoming fire…This is where conservatives abandoned the battlefield 40 years ago. Respect!”

Recall that the late Andrew Breitbart popularized the phrase “politics is downstream from culture.”

Spotify is the same company that deleted about 40 Joe Rogan Experience episodes from its digital archive after signing the popular podcaster to an exclusive, lucrative contract.

The apparent censoring of “Safe Space” has resulted in a crescendo of reactions on Twitter that reveals a double standard that might be, as it were, in play.
