Slave hair Nigga hair The most derogatory and insulting of them all It’s unmanageable Like slave hair Weren't our ancestors slaves? And what made their hair any more difficult than black hair today? And Mama, what makes you any better than a slave? Talking like that Thinking like that Slave hair, what is slave hair? What is nigga hair?
Damn Mama You're the reason I hated my hair For so long I was always wanting to cut the hair from my head For so long Always wishing for looser curls or Straighter tresses For so long The reason I dropped my crown and forgot to pick it up
And only recently Did I find my crown Began to adjust and love my crown To love my hair My beautiful, nappy hair Or whatever you wanna call it
