lyrics

BLACK



Is my BLACK the way I laugh
from the deepest part of me
joyful celebrating life from the deepest part of me
Is my BLACK the way I cry
from the deepest part of me
embracing the pain in life that’s delivered all to me.
Is my BLACK the way I listen
from the deepest part of me
learning everything that love life and loss has taught to me.
Is my BLACK the way I speak
from the deepest part of me,
Say exactly what I think
From the deepest part of me
Is my BLACK the way I hate
from the deepest part of me,
turning away all of those away who have hurt or troubled me?
Is my BLACK the way I love?
From the deepest part of me
I thank god and pray then hug all the deepest parts of me


Yes my soul is BLACK and proud
From the deepest parts of me
Keep on fighting the revolution
With the deepest parts of me

Try to hang and shoot us down
Cage my mind and steal my soul
Cause I know I’m BLACK and proud
and my soul is solid gold





Uh

different unique

With the words imma teach

Fighting my demons
With exorcist priests just to talk to the ghost that my Ancestors seen 
Through the pineal stream
Some throw bones to the wise Voodoo
past lives tattooed on the skin of my genes
Water drips from the dreams of the clouded OGs on the scene
Cloned dice thrown in the Sierra Leon streets
To the base of the beat
That the stations don’t see

IM BLACK

Bitch nigga

IM BLACK

fuck nigga

IM BLACK


Ya mind is a treasure that they try to discover
An abyss of thoughts algorithm translates
Strange fruits from the trees
Black bodies on knees
With a song from the blood of our Queens on repeat
Cast Iron comb held from freedom up in these teeth
For the African gold not the change that you seek
Pray I don’t get burned while having to pay a price off the music that I write or the things that I like
I wake up in the morning and I’m BLACK as fuck
Mad as fuck
Sad as fuck
roll a blunt
Social media presence don’t make you BLACK enough
Nigga For 27 years I been BLACK as fuck
With No bail outs
Plenty of sell outs
Grandparents and parents
Scared of my whereabouts 
Even when I’m secure
Pandemic red bandanna Tupac Shakur
As I walk through the store
