WALE – Black Is Gold lyrics

INTRO
 It’s shine season, yeah
 Black, the black

CHORUS
 The black is beautiful, baby, black is bold
 Black is black, true, but black is gold
 No, ay, hey, yeah, look
 I say black is beautiful, shawty, black is bold
 Black is black, true, but black is gold
 Ay, let’s do it

VERSE 1
 Look, black is beautiful, shawty, that you should know
 Don’t let American standards damage your African soul
 Natural hair, oh with a weave under
 I buy you Givenchy rags in rapid need for ya
 I’ll rap a feature and buy you pieces from people that you love
 Celine Dion pay for that Céline that you got on
 Yeah, is you single? Is you good?
 Can I get into ya India with Game ’cause your finger licking good
 Oh, you so sweet when you put on
 I don’t mind your body shy ’cause you can sleep in my cologne
 Woo, yeah, okay, Wale on that other shit
 That grown man, build up your mind, slide in your stomach shit
 Hold hands rarely in public, they never notice us
 They might as well tell you we on, we got the golden touch
 Get it? Fuck with it
 They might as well tell you we on, we got the golden touch, right

CHORUS
 Black is beautiful, baby, black is bold
 Black is black, true, but black is gold
 No, ay, hey, yeah, look
 I say black is beautiful, shawty, black is bold
 Black is black, true, but black is gold

VERSE 2
 Uh, look, hey Miss Lupita
 Hope you know you inspired the future women for us
 Don’t know your vibe really, just know that your mother Kenyan
 Just know that that melanin mesmerizing in every picture
 God true, hey miss ducky, hey
 I think your hair is amazing but brain is even greater
 Don’t ever let what people say ever convince you ain’t bae
 Knowing hella actors black facing trynna play us
 God true, hey Viola darling
 I see you shining with Shonda, thought I should rhyme about you
 ‘Cause you body the monologues and you care ’bout us
 Get away with murder everytime you red carpet
 God true, hey miss Issa Rae
 Beautiful Senegalese, leader with shit to say
 We should meet today, maybe out at Best Buy
 Lawerence Hive, still I’m proud, Issa’s a savage
 Actually Issa Knife, right

CHORUS
 Black is beautiful, baby, black is bold
 Black is black, true, but black is gold
 No, ay, hey, yeah, look
 I say black is beautiful, shawty, black is bold
 Black is black, true, but black is gold, shine, yeah

OUTRO
 I got tired of that
 This for every beautiful queen listening
 That may sometimes think we forget you dude to this bulshit system
 This for every India Arie, young Justine Skye
 And please don’t go cut out on us now young SZA
 Let’s celebrate the awesomeness that is our sisters
 My affinity is infinity and I wish you everything that gives you better energy
 So be prouder, be flier
 And like my auntie Michelle told me, we gotta do our job to reach high, holla, Folarin
