Misogyny of Noah in Andre Nickatina’s “Andre-n-Andre”
September 21, 2014
Thanks to Mac Dre in Andre Nickatina's "Andre-n-Andre" we get a really misogynistic reference to Noah, although one not at odds with the biblical world.
In verse 3:
I got split personalities, I'm bi-polar
You might see me with my Italian stallion or my chola
Rap rock and rolla, I'm dope as yola
If you don't pimp her, I might like Dola
I'm riding in a big boat like Noah
Wid two women of each races, boy I control a
A whole ho stable I'm a mack and I'm ready
No dough ho dead it, that's right I said it
Imagine Noah's 'big boat' like a pimped out car with a wide body, custom chrome, and spinning rims - attention to architecture paralleled only by Genesis 6. Playing on the Flood story's famous depiction of animals coming on two-by-two, Mac Dre likens his two hos, each of different races, to a fulfillment of biblical command. Too bad he didn't know about the Jahwistic source and the 7 pairs of each animal; and he could have a hay day giving the clean and unclean pairs a new contemporary referent.
But far be it from me to help his misogyny along. All I will say is, Mac Dre's reference to dating multiple women of different ethnic groups is totally in line with the biblical worldview of polygamy and cross-group marriages.
