L.L. Cool JLegendary rapper L.L. Cool J. and country crooner Brad Paisley have teamed up to create “Accidental Racist,” a song so ridiculous and, well, arguably racist, that social media is questioning if it could possibly be satire.

Released Monday, one day before Paisley’s album “Wheelhouse” hits stores, the track has been raked over the coals and mocked by Twitter users.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Paisley said that the song grew from racial inequality and suspicion:

“We don’t solve anything, but it’s two guys that believe in who they are and where they’re from very honestly having a conversation and trying to reconcile.”

“I’m with my audience 100 percent in the Southern pride thing, in the same way that a Yankees fan is very proud of where he’s from — that’s LL,” Paisley said. “We’ve got pictures of him in a New York Yankees cap doing his vocal, which is so appropriate.”

New York native LL Cool J has a verse as well, rapping “I guess we’re both guilty of judgin’ the cover not the book/I’d love to buy you a beer, conversate and clear the air/But I see that red flag and I think you wish I wasn’t here.”

What’s even most astounding is that in explaining this song, Paisley described why it was probably not a good idea to be on the record:

“I’m doing it because it just feels more relevant than it even did a few years ago,” Paisley told EW. “I think that we’re going through an adolescence in America when it comes to race. You know, it’s like we’re almost grown up. You have these little moments as a country where it’s like ‘Wow things are getting better.’ And then you have one where it’s like ‘Wow, no they’re not.’”
