Okay, okay… I know I am *super late* on this, but many a natural were pleasantly surprised when Drake gave a shout out to natural hair in ‘Poetic Justice, a Kendrick Lamar single released in January.
The lyric is:
I mean I write poems in these songs, dedicated to the fun sex
Your natural hair and your soft skin, and your big ass in that sundress (ooh!)
Good God, what you doing that walk for?
When I see that thing move, I just wish we would fight less and we would talk more
You can catch the lyrics at the 3:17 mark.
Rap music is notorious for promoting one standard of beauty (light skin), and even speaking against different beauty ideals, so it’s definitely a change of pace to hear this — especially from a top rapper.
What do you think ladies?
