Were just touching the beat up a little bit. Its about done; its about there. Its sounding crazy too. Whats even crazier is what Cyrus could potentially add to the 36-year-old rappers song, which already includes lyrics like They see a black man with a white woman/ At the top floor they gone come to kill King Kong/ Middle America packed in/ Came to see me in my black skin. One can only wonder whether she is singing on the remix or rapping, as she recently dropped a verse on Mike WiLLs track 23. Cyrus new album, BANGERZ, due Oct. 4, also features several hip-hop artists, like Big Sean, French Montana, Ludacris, and Nelly.

We watched the VMAs a little bit, but we went straight to the studio, he said. While some have criticized the Wrecking Ball singer for trying to gain street cred, others have even said shes trying to be black. The criticism started after Cyrus reportedly told sibling songwriting duo Timothy and Theron Thomas that she wanted a more urban sound when they were penning We Cant Stop. I just want something that just feels black, she reportedly said. In an open letter from June, The Huffington Post s Ernest Owens wrote to Cyrus, To take it a step further, you express what feels black in the music video to the song as a portrayal of you twerking with a group of black women enticing you on.

Lucas wrote, Cyrus can surround herself with a thousand big-bootied black women onstage or use a million more, essentially as props, in her videos to achieve some disillusioned version of street cred, but that doesnt make what shes doing anything close to authentically black. Still, West is supposedly supportive of her wild antics, especially the VMAs performance. He told her that she did right, the producer said.
