"Fetish" by Roy Kinsey
HOM | 2019
On this melancholic, four-minute tour de force, Roy Kinsey unpacks his experience with the way white gay culture fetishizes black men and black bodies, including in the Chicago gay neighborhood of Boystown. Choice lyrics: “White gays say ‘Yasss’/White men say ‘Mama’/They wanna take back the night/From the girls that look like Marsha.”
“Fetish” is the latest in a string of 2019 singles for Roy Kinsey. Previous releases this year include “Crook County”, “Apple Care” with Ill Brown, and “UGC” with KC Ortiz & The Vixen. “Fetish” is accompanied by a music video directed by Ashley Battle.
