Black Diamond Aeo


Ima black diamond so I got a dark shine
Hard knock life I done lived some hard times
But I grind harder
So we can live better
And have more cheddar
Eating good from the hood

Ima black diamond so I got a dark shine
Hard knock life I done lived some hard times
But I grind harder
So we can live better
And have more cheddar
Eating good from the hood

Where things ain't ever good
Mothers did what they could
Kids don't do what they should
But what do you expect
We get no respect
Grew up in section 8
Yall from cloud 9
You'll never understand
Unless you walked the shoes
And I mean starting from the wee baby booties too
But yo I ain't mad at ya
Enjoy ya good life
Cause I know I was born for more than just the hood life

I want that nice wife
Not a baby mother
I want my son to have the same dad as his brother
Cause I ain't have that
But yo I love my mother
And as a young boy I never understood her struggle
In the hood I felt like Harry surrounded by muggles
It's not that I was better
It's just I wanted better
Tired of rainy days
I want the better weather
So I look to the sky
Spread my wings and fly

Yeah
Spread my wings and fly
I want to soar with eagles
That's brotherly love
And when they see me they just see a black man
But I'm so much more
I'm a brother, I'm a son
I'm an uncle, I'm a friend
I'm a cousin, a nephew
Ella's grandchild too
But more than anything
I'm a child of the king

When you see me
When you see me
When you see me
When you see me
You looking at one of God's sons
You looking at one of God's sons
You looking at one of God's sons
You looking at one of God's sons


Black diamond I'm shining
Black diamond I'm shining
