    I Am Not my Hair (ft. India Arie)
    [Akon: Verse 1]
    Konvict Music uh huh

    See I can kind of recall a lil ways back
    Small tryin to ball always been black
    And my hair I tried it all I even went flat
    Had a gummy curled on top and all that crap (o oh)
    Just tryin to be appreciated
    Nappy headed brothers never had no ladies
    Never hit the barber shop real quick
    Had a mini lil twist and it drove her crazy (crazy)
    Then I couldnt get no job
    Cuz corporate wouldn't hire no dreadlocks
    Then I thought about my dogs on the block
    Kinda understand why they chose to steal and rob
    Was it the hair that got me this far?
    All these girls these cribs these cars?
    I hate to say it but it seem so flawed
    Success didnt come til I cut it all off

    [India.Arie: Verse 1]
    Little girl with the press and curl
    Age eight I got a Jheri curl
    Thirteen and I got a relaxer
    I was a source of so much laughter
    At fifteen when it all broke off
    Eighteen and I went all natural
    February two thousand and two
    I went on and did
    What I had to do
    Because it was time to change my life
    To become the women that I am inside
    Ninety-seven dreadlocks all gone
    I looked in the mirror
    For the first time and saw that HEY,

    I am not my hair
    I am not this skin
    I am not your expectations no no
    I am not my hair
    I am not this skin
    I am a soul that lives within

    [India.Arie: Verse 2]
    Good hair means curls and waves
    Bad hair means you look like a slave
    At the turn of the century
    It's time for us to redefine who we be
    You can shave it off
    Like a South African beauty
    Or get in on lock
    Like Bob Marley
    You can rock it straight
    Like Oprah Winfrey
    If it's not what's on your head
    It's what's underneath and say HEY,


    [Akon: Verse 2]
    Who cares if you don't like that
    With nothin to lose postin with the wave cap
    And the cops want to harass because I got waves
    Ain't see nothin like that in all my days (o oh)
    And you gotta change all this feelings
    They be judging one another by their appearance
    Yes India, i feel ya girl
    Now go 'head talk to the rest of the world because,

    (Whoa, whoa, whoa)
    Does the way I wear my hair make me a better person?
    (Whoa, whoa, whoa)
    Does the way I wear my hair make me a better friend? Oooh
    (Whoa, whoa, whoa)
    Does the way I wear my hair determine my integrity?
    (Whoa, whoa, whoa)
    I am expressing my creativity,
    (Whoa, whoa, whoa)

    [India.Arie: Verse 3]
    Breast Cancer and Chemotherapy
    Took away her crown and glory
    She promised God if she was to survive
    She would enjoy everyday of her life ooh
    On national television
    Her diamond eyes are sparkling
    Bald headed like a full moon shining
    Singing out to the whole wide world like HEY,up by
    Big Frog

    [Chorus til fade]
