Highly Melanated

I’m highly melanated, not highly medicated

The exotic herbs in my smoke, keeps me slightly meditated


They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder

Yet, society keeps trying to fool us over and over

Flashing images of what is defined as beauty

Got us wearing corsets, what’s next?

Already enhancing the booty

When we love our own beauty? Not influenced by the world

Stop telling that Mahogany Goddess she’s pretty for a dark-skinned girl

Even our melanin sisters nicknamed Red or Yellow Bone

Seen ‘em facing mad hate strictly based on skin tone

Stop it, we are one


I’m highly melanated, not highly medicated

The exotic herbs in my smoke, keeps me slightly meditated


Queens, we color the spectrum like a melanated rainbow

Yet they try to make us think we are the less desirable

Brainwashing us, telling us we need a bigger that or smaller this

Get out my damn head these my mutherfuckin' tits

I'm bitten by melanin, kissed by the sun

He spun

My chocolate, your mahogany bronze

or maybe cashew

Whatever your hue, it looks fly on you

Mocha, chestnut, tan or Indian red

Fuck what they said, don't you dare hang your head


I’m highly melanated, not highly medicated

The exotic herbs in my smoke, keeps me slightly meditated


Y'all feel me yet?

Y'all starting to see past the propaganda and the lies

'Cause I'll be damn if they gon' have me thinking something wrong

With these chocolate thunder thighs

But, the biggest lies

Is ultimately where true beauty lies

See, it's nestled in the character

Way down deep inside

That inner you, burning and bursting to be free

Yeah, she's different from everyone else

That's how we were designed to be

This is only my opinion on how I see shit

And when they ask me why I think this way

I simply tell 'em this ...


I’m highly melanated, not highly medicated

The exotic herbs in my smoke, keeps me slightly meditated
