Dead Prez “The Beauty Within”
“Down to earth like greens and cornbread
She don’t need no weaves or contacts
Not judging other girls that got that
Im just sayin’ you’re the truth never doubt that”
An ode to the natural girl! You don’t even have to finish listening to the whole thing to love it, right? Well worth the three minutes of your time, “The Beauty Within” re-affirms the fact that women with short natural hair, big natural hair, or damn near no hair at all are beautiful. Dead Prez, always great for going against the grain, openly applaud the women defying Hollywood and mainstream beauty standards. Turning out B.o.B.’s “Nothing on You,” “The Beauty Within” tells Africana sistahs to keep doing them. And while you might not get to hear about or see yourselves all over Wacka Flocka and Drake videos (not that you would be caught dead in them), it’s nice to see that natural girls can get some love too!
