shocked. And stupid. ANYWAY I’m using my mom’s earphone cuz I lost my mini mic. I’m surprised that my mini mic lasted this long. So on the bright side, at least
it took me almost 10 months to lose my mini mic. hey guys it’s Nikita or nikitastar * I haven’t been on YouTube in a really long time because school started! but now I’m back so watch my videos and expect a video every weekend. i’m sorry i swear idk what this is viewer discretion advised …i need help I’ve been
wanting to post this video for a really long time now, but I kept procrastinating,
because there are quite a few things to explain. So I’ll try to be concise and
get to the point… something I’m not really good at. If you DON’T have time to
understand what this video is about just forward the video to 3:10 !!!!!!!!!111!11!11!1 our class was given a unique opportunity:
the hamilton program. Not only do I get to watch Hamilton on Broadway for an
extremely cheap price of $10.00, but I also get to experience creating my own
song, just like Lin-Manuel Miranda (BLESS HIM) did when he created the musical Hamilton. Eventually I decided to create a song based off of Patrick Henry’s
revolutionary speech from 1775. Then I got the idea of introducing an
African American perspective from 1775 into it, and from there, I figured out the
lyrics and chords. Fun fact: when I recorded it (around mid-October) I hadn’t
actually listened to the entire Hamilton soundtrack or seen the show on Broadway yet. In Patrick Henry’s speech, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” from 1775, he uses the term “enslaved” to convince the colonists or loyalists to revolt against the British, metaphorically stating that Great Britain is enslaving all the colonists. From a slave’s perspective, this could be frustrating, because the colonists were essentially complaining about being enslaved by Great Britain while actually enslaving African Americans themselves. The song “Hypocrisy” illustrates both of their perspectives and shows how one idea, “slavery,” can have two different meanings to two different individuals from the same time period. The female slave perspective is inspired by Phillis Wheatley, who wrote poems from a young age. Check the description for the lyrics, or turn on captions in the bottom right corner. Lastly, citations are also in the description. FINALLY! The moment you’ve all been waiting for… God won’t love me if I hold back my opinion. Therefore, I present my views on our revolution. Stop your illusions, nobody’s gonna save us. The whole truth is that Great Britain’s gonna’ chain us. You say you want to wait in order to get stronger… Let’s not deceive ourselves with false hope any longer. Do you want to be enslaved?
Do you want to have no freedom? We will all end up enslaved!
They will never give us freedom! that chord was so beautiful im gonna cry — I will either live free, or — — wooOAOAHhHhh! (die!) He thinks he is very clever! But he’s just a hypocrite. Trust me, he knows not what slavery is. He has never been chained! Most of us cannot write, only since we’re not white! We’re the ones who are enslaved!
We’re the ones who want our freedom! He cares not that we’re enslaved!
We will never get our freedom! We’ll never be free. He thinks he is very clever! (God won’t love me if I hold back my opinion.) But he’s just a hypocrite. (Therefore, I present my views on our revolution.) Trust me, he knows not what slavery is. (Stop your illusions, nobody’s gonna save us.) He has never been chained! (The whole truth is that Great Britain’s gonna’ chain us.) Most of us cannot write, (You say you want to wait in order to get stronger…) only since we’re not white! (Let’s not deceive ourselves with false hope any longer.) We’re the ones who are enslaved! (Do you want to be enslaved?) We’re the ones who want our freedom! (Do you want to have no freedom?) He cares not that we’re enslaved! (We will all end up enslaved!) We will never get our freedom! (They will never give us freedom!) We’ll never be free. (I will either live free or die.) 2x I hope you enjoyed and understood my
song! I’m grateful that my teacher let us all be apart of something so creative and exciting, because my life is now forever changed. Before this program, I thought composing a song was a tedious process, and I thought I could never really make a song. But now I know the process, and I think having a hard deadline really helped me complete this song. So that’s it for this video!
