[Verse 1: Styles P] (*Floetry)
(I'm Black!!!)Whether I'm poor or rich or rich or poor it's all the same shit
(I'm Black!!!) Even though my skins kind of light
That mean my ancestors was raped by somebody white
(I'm Black!!!) So I like to sing, dance and crack jokes
Eat good food and be around black folks
(I'm Black!!!) So I like the oldies on Sundays
Drink all night and still go to work Monday
(I'm Black!!!) So I like my kids lookin real nice
Cause I been poor and I know what it feels like
(I'm Black!!!) And I'm a say it loud like James Brown
People be proud cause we all up in the game now
(I'm Black!!!) And I'm a hold my right fist real high
Might see my man and we might get real high
(I'm Black!!!) And I know it and I aint afraid to show it
(I'm Black!!!) And I'm a genius and a motherfuckin poet, you know it
(*Oh oh oooh oooh yeah!)

[Chorus: Floetry] (*Letters in CAPS mean Styles P & Floetry sing together)
So proud to be just who I am (So proud to say that I'm me)
So proud to be just who I am (So proud to be so free)
(I'M BLACK!!!) So proud to say that I made it
(I'M BLACK!!!) Through all of the struggle and the hatred
(I'M BLACK!!!) And I'm not afraid to say it
(I'M BLACK!!!) I'm black, over and over, say it again, yeah

[Verse 2: Styles P] (*Floetry)
(I'm Black!!!) So I got a heart full of bravery
Do it for my peoples that went through slavery
(I'm Black!!!) So you know Im young good in sports
Ninety percent chance I get hung in the court
(I'm Black!!!) Don't you be scared of me Mister
Cause you don't really seemed to be scared of my sister
(I'm Black!!!) And I could ride first class too
Or buy an exotic car and might mirk pass you
(I'm Black!!!) And I don't need a tan in the winter
Mind strong and powerful non-cipher can't enter
(I'm Black!!!) And I don't need jewelry to shine
Look at my skin color it's like the jewelry is blind
(I'm Black!!!) They focus on the negative attention
Do something positive it never get mentioned
(I'm Black!!!) Listen it's a fact
Original man that wouldn't change it if I could and that's that
(*Oh oh oooh oooh yeah!)

[Chorus: Floetry] (*Letters in CAPS mean Styles P & Floetry sing together)
So proud to be just who I am (So proud to say that I'm me)
So proud to be just who I am (So proud to be so free)
(I'M BLACK!!!) So proud to say that I made it
(I'M BLACK!!!) Through all of the struggle and the hatred
(I'M BLACK!!!) And I'm not afraid to say it
(I'M BLACK!!!) I'm black, I'm black, oh, yeah yeah!

[Verse 3: Styles P] (*Floetry)
(I'm Black!!!) Even with a caramel complexion
Look in the mirror see Malcolm and Martin in reflection
(I'm Black!!!) Just like the Panthers lookin for an answer
This prejudice shit is like cancer
(I'm Black!!!) Look at my eyes the wool can't get pulled over
Look at my cars they stay gettin pulled over
(I'm Black!!!) Meanin Public Enemy's number one
Government lookin in the hood sendin in the guns
(I'm Black!!!) I grew up off The Good Times show
Drink liquor and some weed let the good times roll
(I'm Black!!!) I live for my wife and my seeds
And my mind with a find only God could exceed
(I'm Black!!!) I got to show my homeboys love
First thing we learned in the hood was homeboy love
(I'm Black!!!) And I'm that if I aint nothin else
(I'm Black!!!) I'm beautiful I love myself
(*Love myself, oooh oooh oooh yeah!)

[Chorus: Floetry] (*Letters in CAPS mean Styles P & Floetry sing together)
So proud to be just who I am (So proud to say that I'm me)
So proud to be just who I am (So proud to be so free)
(I'M BLACK!!!) So proud to say that I made it
(I'M BLACK!!!) Through all of the struggle and the hatred
(I'M BLACK!!!) And I'm not afraid to say it
(I'M BLACK!!!) I'm black, I'm black, yeah.
