LYRICS

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
