"They move the finish line and say we overstep/ And y’all still don’t get it yet," raps the drag star.

In June, the final four from season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race -- Aquaria, Eureka O’Hara, Kameron Michaels and Asia O’Hara -- recorded verses for RuPaul’s track “American” for the season’s final challenge. Now, the season’s most polarizing contestant, The Vixen, has dropped “The ‘American’ Verse you didn’t ask for…,” as she described on Instagram.

The queen, who has previously shown off her rap skills on Shea Couleé’s track “Cocky,” delivered powerful lyrics true to her brand as a tireless voice against racial injustice. Read the verse below:

I’ve been protesting since the seventh grade
Cause financial aid ain’t ever paid
They build prisons just to set us straight
But ain’t got the funds to come educate
It was a godsend way back then
I learn social studies from a black man
Who was proud to tell me my history
was more than what this country done did to me
So fuck slave ships and assassinations
We invented shit let’s get black to greatness
This woke shit be exasperating
And y’all shrug it off like I’m exaggerating
Fuck you expect from all this neglect
when the day you’re born you treated as a threat
And taught to live with the disrespect
Like getting first place and treated second-best
They move the finish line and say we overstep
And y’all still don’t get it yet
They poke at us call it a test
Bitch, go have your cigarette
