[verse 1:]
the epitome of blackness
finally got money
it came with taxes
& by this time i figured
i’d be doing back flips in money
instead 24 still dressing bummy
living from check to check
in debt
but yet i’m hungry
for the grind
get up and get it n-gga
cause i’m securing mine
if only ya work was ya talk
then you’d be doing fine
if only my passion
reached my pockets
i’d save a dime
if only my god would show his face
to me just one time
i would never go back
to the worldly ways
i’d grow my hair out forever
and serve thе rest of my days
i would show you who you could be
understand that it ain’t a racе
as long as you breathing air
and occupying a sp-ce
it was paid for
by the blood
of the holy maker
i’m faithful
to an extend
the ignorance of my nature
to ya face it’s a smile
but behind ya back they gone hate ya
the day that you make a fool of ya people
the day the pay you
[chorus: lavahi]
be proud you always stand out from the crowd
baby, you’re never too bold
baby, you’re never too loud
dark forces always try to bring us down
revolution’s like karma
it always comes back around
difference don’t have to be difficult
baby, your blackness is beautiful
they’ll never take away your crown
always wear your crown

verse 2:
never lost sight of who i was
to fit in with other people
my daddy black as a pupil
where i’m from
we say i see you
when you doing good
or doing something constructive
why be environments product
could spend it being
being productive
it’s
enough of us being destructive
the panthers wasn’t the answer
what happened to fred hampton
we gotta move in silence
secret society
you not alone in the story
i notice when people i eyein me too
i ain’t ya house n-gga frying the food
throw me out in the field
i’ll still be a lion it’s true
if you wanna test it
i’m good with my words
make you respect it
plugged in
like a telephone jack
i’m well connected to the culture
it’s loverz of art til the day it’s over
i know you gotta dream
but you gotta get off the sofa
i know you gotta a team
what it mean if no one can coach em
god m.c. me
that’s closure
[chorus: lavahi]
be proud you always stand out from the crowd
baby, you’re never too bold
baby, you’re never too loud
dark forces always try to bring us down
revolution’s like karma
it always comes back around
difference don’t have to be difficult
baby, your blackness is beautiful
they’ll never take away your crown
always wear your crown

[poem:]
who are you when n0body’s lookin?
who are you behind that smile?
the energy of a king
the epitome of a child
i aspire to be
be more
be pure
be sure…
be sure

[bridge:]
protests are more than black boxes and aesthetic
and liberal helping hands should be more than prosthetic
try to keep us stagnant, our energy is kinetic
hebrews, egypt, the desert are cyclic more than prophetic
but we’re never given more than we can bear
no need to be scared when your spirit’s aware
you got the power
you are the power
we got the power
we are the power
[verse 3:]
when did generosity
start to come with a tax?
the coldest n-gga spittin
you listen it’s only facts
teachin em tradition
we get the stadium packed
you can still be a blessing
though financially you lack
see — i’ll be a better man soon
blacker the berry
the sweeter the juice . . you — consume
the 26th of june
i love beyond the moon
you taught me a few things
i was never afforded
like how birthday
doesn’t mean you maturing
but everything that you write
is like river of jordan
uh
i see it now
lavish life from recording
lucky larry
from mirror practice
to world touring
i can be
what i wanna be
now you repeat
i can see
beyond what’s in front of me
and you could see
if you wanna admit defeat
you got it
but stay away
the epitome of blackness
the malcolm x of his day
