Brad Paisley and LL Cool J have been caught in a PR nightmare since the release of their track, Accidental Racist.

And though we’re not entirely surprised the duo have been getting a ton of slack for their confederate-questioning song, they’re nothing but proud of it.

Brad took to Twitter to defend his latest work with the following:

LL similarly backed the track, revealing why he finds music such an important “connecting” drive:

"Music is about … connecting different people, and building bridges and breaking the rules… I needed to do something that was going to be interesting like that, and shake things up, and jump out of the box. I'm really proud of it, and I hope the world hears it and enjoys it."

He also added of his country collaborator:

"Brad's not afraid to express himself… What other country artist, or any artist right now, talks about slavery?"

Well, we have to admit, the track does have everyone talking… Mission accomplished? Sorta??

    did white people from the South or anywhere else ask brad paslieass to apologize for them? I didn't think so. ll cool j should pull up his pants because it just looks stupid.
