I saw Jill perform this song on the BET awards the other day and just had to delve a little deeper. Once I really got a chance to absorb the lyrics, I have had in on repeat ever since. I wish I could make every woman in America memorize the lyrics to this song. Man. Jill Scott is such an amazing songstress but she is an even more amazing poet and wordsmith. She has another poem off her live album that eludes to this same sentiment (Please Listen, it will give this post so much more context). It’s about the challenges of carrying a woman’s body before you have a woman’s mind. Awesome, Awesome…Awesome.
Anyway, I gather both from her poetry and her music that little miss Jill was hot in the ass growing up. You know what; I am not even gonna say that. She probably wasn’t even fast. She was probably just misguided and had low self esteem like so many other
