Keep Ya Head Up

Lyrics

Little somethin' for my godson Elijah and a little girl named Corinne

Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice
I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots
I give a holler to my sisters on welfare

All you real men get up us ladies are fed up
I just had to cuss some dumb b**ch saying I'm glad they killed this n**ga
since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it's time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
An make the babies
I play this song everyday
Soulful, heartfelt, beautiful poetry. An artist that showed every aspect of humanity. Anger, depression, aggression, hurt, joy, success, love, and hate. RIP
