Macklemore isn't afraid to address the serious issues — and throw some shade!

The rapper — along with partner Ryan Lewis — has released a new track called White Privilege II, which discusses racism, cultural appropriation, and the Black Lives Matter movement, raising the question:

"Take all we want from black culture, but will we show up for black lives?"

In the eight-minute track, which serves as a sequel to White Privilege from his 2005 album The Language of My World, Mack also names white artists who have been called out for ripping off black culture — specifically Miley Cyrus and Iggy Azalea!

He raps:

"You've exploited and stolen the music, the moment/ The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toy with/ The culture was never yours to make better/ You're Miley, you're Elvis, you're Iggy Azalea."

Both singers have been called out for cultural appropriation before. Miley was blasted by critics who said she used black women's bodies as props in her We Can't Stop music video!

Azalea has been one of the most visible rappers to get heat — Azealia Banks said the Black Widow performer was popular because she was caucasian, not talented.

And yes, even Elvis Presley is one of the early examples of an artist whose popularity overshadowed the originators of his musical style!

Macklemore is no stranger to being called out for appropriating rap music himself, which was evidenced by his win over Kendrick Lamar for the Best Rap Album at the 2014 Grammys.

But the Thrift Shop rapper isn't only increasing the dialogue on the topic in song. His company Macklemore & Ryan Lewis LLC will work with Black Lives Matter, People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, Youth Undoing Institutional Racism & Freedom School, and Black Youth Project 100! AH-Mazing!

Do YOU think Miley and Iggy will be upset about getting called out again? Is Macklemore calling himself out as well??
