Sometimes when I wake up I have a song in my head. This morning it was Tupac's "Dear Mama," so I listened to it of course, which then led me to an hour of gansta rap, which I loved because sometimes that's just where I am, you know.
(Don't hate now.)
This led me to other songs - NOT gangsta - on my playlist that have connection to maternal identity. I replayed these two over again even after the hour of my indulgence.
Nas' - "Dance"
Jay-Z - "Momma"
