This generation black women have openly questioned if black men really love black women or do we see their white counterparts as the ultimate prize when black males make it big. Wale shared a heartfelt song to all the beautiful black women “Black Is Gold” via Soundcloud. He deeply expresses how black women skin tone is so radiating and beautiful.
He mentions actress Lupita Nyong’o serving as a inspiration, along with Viola Davis and Issa Rae rapping over a sample of D’Angelo’s classic tune “Lady.”
“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 mesmerizin’ in every picture
God true, hey miss ducky, hey
I think your hair is amazin’ but brain is even greater
Don’t ever let what people say ever convince you, ay babe
No when hella actors black facin’ trial players
God true, hey Viola darlin’
I see you shinin’ with shine, thought I should rhyme about you
‘Cause you body the monologues and you care ’bout us
Get away with murder every time you red carpet
God true, hey miss Isa Ray
Beautiful [?], leave her with shit to say
We should meet today, maybe out at Best Buy
Lorain’s high, still I’m proud, Isa’s a savage actually eats tonight, right”
Wale’s song is anthem for this new generation and hopefully is serves an inspiration.
