Ever since Nelly scored what seemed like a comeback hit with country singer Tim McGraw in 2004 with “Over and Over,” hip-hop has been trying to figure out a way to mesh country music into it without losing its credibility. That hasn’t worked out as well as the artists leading the charge would’ve hoped. Snoop Dogg‘s song with Willie Nelson was laughed off as a corny bluegrass mashup about Snoop’s favorite subject–smoking weed. Now, LL Cool J is tossing his hat into the hip-hop/country song mashup ring with country crooner Brad Paisley on their song “Accidental Racist.”

Brad Paisley and LL Cool J spend an entire five minutes and fifty seconds trying to convince the opposite race that they aren’t racist despite doing racist things. For example, Paisley sings about not realizing putting on a t-shirt emblazoned with a Confederate flag was racist because he only meant it as a tribute to southern country rock band Lynard Skynard. SMDH…

Listen to the song below. Was I tripping or what? Let me know.
