    Residente Shares His Jaw-Dropping Single ‘This Is Not America’

    Residente finds himself in some hot water after dropping his collaboration with Argentinian producer Bizarrap. He released a song called “This Is Not America”. This new song is a response to Childish Gambino’s hit “This Is America”.

    First, let’s talk about Gambino’s contribution. The song ‘This Is America’ relates to the reality of what it’s like to live in the United States as a person of color, the struggles of gun violence, and the disproportion between economical classes. But there’s one thing Gambino got wrong when making the hit track and Residente points it out.

    “América no es sólo USA, papá, esto es desde ‘Tierra del Fuego’ hasta Canadá”.

    This means “America is not just the USA, man, this is from ‘Tierra del Fuego’ to Canada”. These are one of the few words in the beginning, which make reference to Gambino’s song.

    Additionally, in Residente’s music video we find various scenes of the crude reality that goes on in Latin America. Mostly these are the separation of families due to migration to the United States in hopes of a better future.

    “Estos canallas se les olvidó que el calendario que usan se lo inventaron los Mayas”

    “These scoundrels forgot that the calendar they use was invented by the Mayans”. Moreover, in this fragment, the Puerto Rican rapper demonstrates the history of attributions to the pre-Hispanic cultures left for us.

    Then in another part of the video, a group of people with their faces covered makes a huge reference to the 90’s group EZLN (Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional) or Zapatista Army of National Liberation. It also showcases Central American Gangs like “Mara Salvatrucha”.
