Nappy Roots Day (Explicit Album Version) - Nappy Roots

Holiday

 

Holiday

 

One of them is fat and loud

Second one is black and proud

Third one's drunk and wild

Fourth one slip and slide

One of them is just shy

Last one is young and wise

Homegrown battle tested,

you gonna love these guys

Brought the hood on them guys

The best story told yet bonded against all odds

Ain't no tearin' them apart

Swore pattern, wow till death do them in

Even in reincarnation they would do it again

Who would ever thought six different strands

Would lock together locked forever

Rockin' leathery wood

told you chicken and Cris go good

With some watermelon

albums sellin' coast to coast

Across the seas gave everything we could

Our tears our sweat our blood, 'cuz

I am because we are

We are because I am

Everbody say

(We are on a holiday)

Now throw your hands to the sky

Turn up the music just ride

We representin' right

(We are on a holiday)

We are because I am

I am because we are

Hey, it's Nappy Roots Day

(We are on a holiday)

Now throw your hands to the sky

Bounce to the music we ride

We representin' right

(We are on a holiday)

Now we stronger than wood, playa

(We tougher than leather)

Us yeaga's hustle together

(Uh uh not just for the Cheddar)

Look here we trustin' each other

(Sayin', "Um you fuck with my brother?)

You gotta suffer the

reprocutions we come from the gutter

(White Kangol, white glass,

six stripped suit with the matching)

Came from the ostrich

blowin' smoke out the nostrils

(Havin' trouble with student loans,

we struggle for too long)

But now we can move on

put that on my tombstone

(We are because I am,

 

ain't hard to understand it)

Far from a shootin' star

(Rather play on my planet)

Power respect

(Demanded)

To us nothing was handed

(Play it as loud as you can

and say just how we played it)

I am because we are

We are because I am

Everbody say

(We are on a holiday)

Now throw your hands to the sky

Turn up the music just ride

 

We representin' right

(We are on a holiday)

We are because I am

I am because we are

Hey, it's Nappy Roots Day

(We are on a holiday)

Now throw your hands to the sky

Bounce to the music we ride

We representin' right

(We are on a holiday)

Bring out your kids and just treat em

Cotton candy plus freedom

Raised by ma cousin and feed em

Sweet as Shirley temple singin'

Clown on the caruselle

Sping on the ferris wheel

It's magic floatin', smokin',

taking up a call from fish house

Man, we livin' straight

Real playas and real estates

Weapons we put away

We reachin' out with Nappy Day

Sparklers light up the dark

fireworks in the park

Shrimp ala car, red wine holly tart

Like soldiers comin' home

Watchin' after the war is gone

Skys raining confetti

Singing out the Nappy medely's

Get rid of felonies

Wash em away with melodies

Irish to Ebonies

Haitians to the Lebonese

As I jot down in my note pad some day

Considered important to me

The birth of my son the day I signed

My first recording agreement

It was sorta like my soul to the Devil

And I was allowing him to keep it

But the true essence of this art form

Can't be confined to temptation and evil

Lots of folks on the grind to this bullshit

And my real yeagas stuck around

So this days a tribute a celebration

I am because we all stay down

Shit, I am gonna keep it

Nappy 365 and 7 days a week

We fortunate to make it out that trap

Because the forest roots they runnin' deep

I am because we are

We are because I am

Everbody say

(We are on a holiday)

Now throw your hands to the sky

Turn up the music just ride

We representin' right

(We are on a holiday)

We are because I am

I am because we are

Hey, it's Nappy Roots Day

(We are on a holiday)

Now throw your hands to the sky

Bounce to the music we ride

We representin' right

(We are on a holiday)

Today I'm feelin' so alive, revived

 

Today I'm feelin' so alive, revived
