[extract 2]

"… I promised my loneliness:  One day I will write myself a Glass Essay

and then I will love like it can’t break.

I prayed Lord give me good legs and an open road.

Lord give me a juggernaut heart and a japanese car.

And yesterday, under the honesty of 60 watt light bulbs and eye-worn passages

there was my story, happy ending superimposed

looking final and unchallenged.

Joy is in the Zong!, is in the Beauty of the Husband and the Bible

clenched in her White Teeth.

[I dare you to tell me I’m not mending].

Joy is back bending in what you think is submission

but is really mercy.

It’s the watershed that comes from a good deed rippling into great character.

My mouth found my face again, found it can still spread.

(Not as easy as butter; not as fast as rumours.

But it can still light up a room or two.)

Sometimes it means you have to be

an archaeologist and an astronomer rolled into one.

But this smile right here is a Genesis older than

the doubt cubbyholed in the big bang’s center.

So though I have been shaking in my boots and my beliefs

I am proud of my ankles. They be no turncoats.

Proud of my knees- the creaking martyrs to dancehall.

They knew sometimes they had to break to keep me upright.”

We are more than the worst thing that’s ever happened to us.

All of us need to stop apologizing for having been to hell and come back breathing.

Erykah Badu Interviews Kendrick Lamar

  • BADU: How do you choose chicks from backstage?
  • LAMAR: How do I choose chicks from backstage?
  • BADU: Yeah, what is the protocol?
  • LAMAR: I try not to. [laughs] I’m too scared. Anybody who knows me knows that I’m probably the most scared person when it comes to that because I’m so caught up in the act of sex, of something going crazy, going out of my control. I’m too paranoid.
  • BADU: [laughs] So you just pass?
  • LAMAR: I’ve got to because I’ve seen a situation where it got totally out of hand, where something seemed so innocent, and now this person has got allegations on them. It spooked me. This was before my career really started, though—before any “Kendrick Lamar.” And that right there? It changed my whole perception about certain things. I’ll always keep that in the back of my head.
  • BADU: So who is your asshole-checker?
  • LAMAR: Who is my what?
  • BADU: Your asshole-checker—the person in your crew or your family who let’s you know if you’re being a asshole.
  • LAMAR: I have two, actually. [both laugh] But the main one is a friend of mine—a lady friend who has known me since high school. She has always been someone, since day one, who has said something whenever I’m an asshole, or also if I’m doin’ something positive—but more so when I’m out of my element.
  • BADU: What’s your favorite cereal?
  • LAMAR: Fruity Pebbles. When people ask for my rider, they think I’m crazy: Fruity Pebbles, baked chicken, bottle of Hennessy, and some Polo socks.
  • BADU: What do you, as a man, envy about what it means to be a woman?
  • LAMAR: There’s just a certain knowledge instilled in a woman. There are these things that women have that men just can’t grasp: the understanding of love; the understanding of being; having a certain type of care in your heart and knowing when to be compassionate; knowing how to be a confidante…
  • BADU: That’s a good perspective. Something I envy that men have is that ability to grow a goatee. I think that’d be really hot on me.
