OSHUN - "STAY WOKE"
"Picking and choosing when you conscious like narcolepsy, Thinking you equal in the pot that they say is melting-Saying you righteous but you pray at the masters church,And when you're told bout yourself you get your feelings hurt!"
As far as the visuals go, the Chelsea Odufu directed video adds a very modern twist to the 1993 film "Sankofa." Don't just look at the video, ANALYZE it. Absorb the lyrics, and then play it again & again. This is just the type of medicine WE need to heal the sickness of post-slavery/colonialism mindset that we cling to still today. Feedback & Comments welcome.
"But i still got to get up, cause my dreaming tells me so-Reflecting truth and fate like divination from the soul. Its tiring but better than a wake like funerals. They trying to keep me sleep and dumb cause that's what's comfortable-Catching zzz’s while their alchemy eating pupils closed. And I’m not living life asleep niambi staying woke. Wake up, wake up..."
