    I be Northern. I be home. Grown like Magnolia and Oak. Strong.
    Soaking up the rays of the northern sun to enhance this melanin
    Resulting in all these beautiful shades of African.
    Don’t believe me? Go ask ya Mama and ‘nem.
    I be the smell of honeysuckle in the summertime.
    Descendents of detroit corners that be drinking dat wine.

    I be northern. Something like a phenomenon.
    like...like Happy children with fireflies in mason jars.
    Back yards with dem old broke cars.
    I be sweating northern charm like dat sweet, sticky Koolaid
    that your favorite auntee in the projects made.
    I be Christmas time at 90 degrees in the shade.

    I be a product of the DPS with out the O. -
    mathematically equivalent to the first drumbeat in the square of Congo.
    Free, natural, a survivor, a lover, a brother. Rough like
    Pecan candy and huckabucks.
    Snowballs and cold cups.
    its chuck...whooo. Giving you more northern bang for your Southern buck.
    See, some brag on their dollars like it makes them smarter.
    But I got them beat, they flock to me and I just be one **** Quarter.like them
    Big Chiefs with fiyah water.
    Tiny feet with hollowed soles just tapping to survive.
    Beautiful voices spitting Truth about the days of our lives.
    I be bounce, hip hop, reggae, gospel, soul, jazz
    I be the e-pit-o-me of Ebony squared up close and personal ciphering northern with so much pozazz.
    I be poetry in motion.
    I flock to Lakes like sea birds flock to Oceans.
    See, I need to pay homage to the detroit like ashy knees need lotion
    Cause I be northern.
    I be blessed and Blessed is who I be.
    I be Home and Home be me!!!!
