    Can I do your hair?

    Let’s take it back to the sands
    Bringing you the power of our homelands
    Naw, I don’t need a comb
    I’m using my hands
    I’ll be putting braids
    in his hair
    trying to repair
    the damage done
    To your mind.
    Come on and sit
    Cause it’s going to take
    A little time

    Naw man, not in the chair
    That’s not how I do hair
    To soften the pain of these
    Cornrows, and ease the strain
    Of these mental blows
    Sit here between my legs
    So that I may forge beautiful pathways
    And help your subconscious remember
    Days of light love and glory
    So I may tell the stories
    Of the true kings you have been

    Brothers getting braids
    Cause they Trees with no roots
    I plant these rows to bring forth the truth
    Living life in all these straight lines
    Let your chakra be intertwined
    Twisted and pulled into divine
    Circumstance
    Don’t flinch, man,
    Give it a chance to loosen its
    Grips on your ugly realities
    And make waves
    Where your uncertainties used to be

    See beauty is scalp deep
    The truth it goes straight
    Through.
    With you hair braided like that
    They will only see the God in you

    Man we were woven,
    Shaved when we were
    stolen
    Made for years to keep it low
    And
    Don’t raise your eyes

    But now you can see how
    These patterns and designs
    Will redefine your life
    And your mind

    Now that this knew crown
    Has been imparted unto you
    There are couple things
    You need to do
    Don’t forget to cover it
    With care
    Before you go to sleep.
    That way the Frayed
    ends won’t show
    and the true beauty won’t
    Creep.
    Remember,
    Oil it to keep the shine

    Thanks for letting me do your hair
    How much?
    Yo just send some cats my way
    And make sure you schedule a day
    For me to re braid your hair.
