    BlackNess

    Black just iz
    Either U have it
    Or U don’t
    Cant buy it or grow it
    Steal it or loan it
    Itz either in U
    Or itz not.
    BlackNess iz Unique
    A quality like no other
    Passing thru generations
    All across the planet.
    They cant duplicate it
    Or manufacture it
    Cant fake it or take it
    And sure cant imitate it.
    Black just iz
    We flaunt it
    Cauz yall waunt it
    U just don’t comprehend
    Itz more than just Our skin
    Our blood may hold a key
    Itz even in Our pee
    Our genes may have a say
    About Our DNA
    Itz more than what U’re seeing
    Itz deep within Our Being.
    Black iz just Incomparable
    The essence and presence of everything
    All things bright and beautiful
    Flow from the Black Universe-cities
    From the pain of Our adversities
    Unchained from their perversities
    Black just iz
    Iz, waz and alwayz will be
    Waz b4 and iz after
    To the illnana
    Which iz for ever.

    Queen of "Blackness" ...look at me,
    I can be no other, than what you see.

    It was "Black" in the womb ...from which I came
    there's no other nation, can stake that claim

    Hose me down ...for hours on end
    but nothing effects, the color of my skin

    I am the "Blackness" of
    this Universe...
    for there is
    No before
    nor after
    ME

    "From the pain of Our adversities
    Unchained from their perversities"

    The vibe here is so on point, it's almost insane to ponder why we are hated so much for just being us. And the structure and rhyme scheme here just sets this piece off, even more so. Flow on brotha.
