Tribute to the Brothas

To the down and out brothas,
To the ones that keep their heads about them when all are losing theirs
To the brothas that stand by their sistas
To the fathers that step up
To the ones who’ve been told they’re no good
And refuse to live down to those expectations
To the ones who mold the world to themselves
And hold up half the sky

Just to tell you, you’re appreciated.

Lyrics-Angie Stone, Brotha

He is my King, He is my one
Yes he’s my father, Yes he’s my son
I can talk to him, cuz he understands
Everything I go through and everything I am
He’s my support system, I can’t live without him
The best thing since sliced bread,
Is his kiss, his hugs, his lips, his touch
And I just want the whole world to know, about my..

Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
cuz youre my
Black Brotha, strong brotha, there is no – one above ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true

He’s misunderstood, some say that he’s up to no good around the neighborhood
But fo’ your information – alot of my brothers got education (now check it)
You got ya wall street brotha, ya blue collar brotha,
Your down for whatever chillin on the corner brother
A talented brotha, and to everyone of yall behind bars
You know that Angie loves ya

Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
cuz youre my
Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you- forever true
cuz youre my
Black Brotha, strong brotha, there is no – one above ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true

You mean so much to me, you give me what i need,
I’m so proud of you (I said I’m so proud of you)
I love you for stayin strong, you got it goin on
I’m so proud of you (I’mmmmmmmmm)
Going through thick and thin, brothas you gonna win
I’m so proud of you (I said I’m so proud of you)
Whenever you facin doubt, brothas gon work it out
I’m so proud of you (I got unshakeable faith in ya)

Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
cuz youre my
Black Brotha, strong brotha, there is no – one above ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
only my
Black Brotha, I love ya, I will never – try to hurt ya
I want ya, to know that, I’m here for you – forever true
