Menoosha : Welcome to the first ever hair cypher Featuring melanated bars by Donniele, Kella and LyricL Beat drop ! Donniele : In North Cackalacky yeah your hair is your glory But only if you fit their narration of your story Too curly to be straight but not nappy enough When image is everything then life can be kind of tough They never wanted me to find out who I be But then I loc‘d it up and felt my spirit fly free They said “you’ll never get a job with your natural hair” But I’ve performed for presidents and I didn’t see you there Kella : Si je veux raconter mes cheveux, je dois commencer jeune en parlant défrisages et tresses mais je n veux pas y penser! Forcée de me coiffer sentir tirer ma tête de tous côtés, mal au crâne : c'est trop serré, cheveux brûlés et trop cassés. J'ai tout coupé ado, j'y mettais toutes sortes de couleur, me les approprier, attacher toutes sortes de foulards. Les dreads sur ma tête sont bien les fruits de ma quête spirituelle, un retour au naturel et aux ancêtres ouais Chorus We're keeping it rolling In a hair cypher We're deep in the feeling Won't you tell me a story bout your hair connection now your skin complexion now Deep in the feeling In a hair cypher Menoosha : Chevelure d'ébène Jadis dense et belle Mais les bémols de la vie et les peines Me les enlèvent Par centaine (x4) LyricL : So let me break down the molecular structure, functional connection. Crown on my head and celestrial direction. Threaded beads and braids. Freedom maps for slaves Single married or queen, patterns ALL differentiate. Hand-skills Never chilled - so we celebrate! Stories passed everlasting DEEP like DNA Ancestors investing in my future, ‘Guides’ Even in a head-wrap Magic and Pride wrapped up inside, THAT’S why! Chorus We're keeping it rolling In a hair cypher We're deep in the feeling Won't you tell me a story bout your hair connection now your skin complexion now Deep in the feeling In a hair cypher Bridge Tell your story, your song Sing your rhapsody all day long It's your crown nothing wrong Keep this hair cypher going strong H-A-I-R Cypher Chorus We're keeping it rolling In a hair cypher We're deep in the feeling Won't you tell me a story bout your hair connection now your skin complexion now Deep in the feeling In a hair cypher
