Lyrics

I’m black and I love it

If you black
Be proud of that
Take no slack
For every colored person
Here’s ya power back, back
If you black
Be proud of that
Take no slack
For every colored person
Here’s ya power back, power back
We ready for the fight
We Ready for the flight
We take off with no wings despite
We give this world life
It’s only right, we demand more
Than Black Lives Matter on ya website

Stay encouraged young brotha, young sista
The world thrives off our black fingers
Have the freedom to ring
The love to sing
We the future they can’t be
Let’s stay
Encouraged young brotha, young sista
Your shade of black stars light like silver
The push of the black fist
The language of what’s happening
You gotta be proud of this black skin

The arc of our country
Was built in the backs of our black men,
Our black women
Let’s never forget
We’ve never forgotten
What was stolen and broken

Souls sold for lazy dollars
And us hoping, Coping
Our moms and dads
Could only communicate about the rate race
We had to learn about hate
Want to be us so badly
You trace our black face
You wanna be us
You wanna be us
Who among us is a Judas
The hate in the world is robust
Bigger than that the mask you cast
The VID can’t slow down our mass
This skin with this kind of craft
I’m proud to be black
Spirit bounce back
Surface hate is really love under that
We brought you inventions
Rarely get mentioned
Unless an item goes missing
Without our swag everything missing

Stay encouraged young brotha, young sista
The world thrives off our black fingers
Have the freedom to ring
The love to sing
We the future they can’t be,
Let’s stay
Encouraged young brotha, young sista
Your shade of black stars light like silver
The push of the black fist
The language of what’s happening
You gotta be proud of this black skin

Every boy and girl
Get ya hands up
We’re the sunshine
For the world to light up
Every king and queen
Get ya hands up
We’re the sunshine
For the world to light up

Never ever, ever, better than black
Never ever, ever, better than that
Never ever, ever, better than black
Never ever, ever, better than that

Stay encouraged young brotha, young sista
The world thrives off our black fingers
Have the freedom to ring
The love to sing
We the future they can’t be, let’s stay
Encouraged young brotha, young sista
Your shade of black stars light like silver
The push of the black fist
The language of what’s happening
You gotta be proud of this black skin

I love being black
In order to trigger the output
You need a black key
The essences of our cool
The demand of our culture
And our nature to create life out of death
Man, I love being black

Stay encouraged young brotha, young sista
Your shade of black stars light like silver
The push of the black fist
The language of what’s happening
You gotta be proud of this black skin
Stay encouraged young brotha, young sista
