about

Parody of Drake's "Started from the Bottom." A song for all of the quirky, weird and boldy self-expressed Xiggas.

lyrics

INTRO
We come in peace

CHORUS
Afro Aliens call us weird
Traveled through the galaxy and we landed here. Xigga.
Afro Aliens call us weird
Traveled through the galaxy and we landed here. Xigga.

VERSE (Taja)
I like to date girls
You can call me queer
Femme and fabulous
Is the new frontier

Nails did, hair did, everything did
Na-Na-Nails did, hair did, everything did

Closets ain’t for me
So I’m proudly here
No hiding, no shame, won’t disappear
Told the fam, mama shed some tears
Challenged religious beliefs that they hold dear
Always been a rebel, call me pioneer
But I operate from heart. I’m so sincere

VERSE (Jessica)
We aint never made it, always living in the moment
Staying present in our lives, like god we omnipotent
As a little girl I was mad softspoken
Now I’m living loud and my passion is awoken
Yea I said it
Awoke
I make words make sense no joke
If words sound power then I spoke
Read reality, write the future. End quote

Lift as we climb
Future undefined
All one people
Cuz our Spirits intertwined
Now is our time make the movements we desire
Travel around the sun, light a universal fire
Life’s a process, not a project
So I express and I connect
Finding god through self exploration
I’m a butterfly body, know thy self -- transformation

VERSE (Taja)
If you’ve been to the bottom, don’t be ashamed
Don’t wallow in regret and self-blame
Every moment of your life has a lesson
That you learned through the struggle and grow through pain (hey!)

We not coming up, we coming out
Becoming full self is what life’s about
When we grow, our people are growing too
We expand together, come enjoy the view

CHORUS
Afro Aliens call us weird
Traveled through the galaxy and we landed here. Xigga.
Afro Aliens call us weird
Traveled through the galaxy and we landed here. Xigga.

BRIDGE
Futuristic sistas got your back
Love and abundance is what we attract
We not here just for entertainment
Our boldness is making a statement

Luminary sol sistas got your back
Love and abundance is what we attract
We not here just for entertainment
Lookin brand new, this shit is oh so ancient RAAAAHHH!

OUTRO
ET phone home
Colored Girls Hustle Hard is a movement (yup)
We ain’t never been on bottom (nope)
We started from the top
We created this
Coming from the galaxy we all made from stardust
(North. South. East. West. All directions. Omnipresent. SAT words Xigga)
