The Beauty Within

Updated: Jun 14, 2020

dead prez are one of those hip-hop groups that you'll rarely hear on the radio. Their music often contains political messages that many media companies aren't comfortable with.

This song focuses on black woman. On the women who don't wear that much make up. Those who wear their natural hair with pride. Those who have had to battle with white beauty standards, seeing others with long, straight hair receiving attention, more respect and even better job opportunities. Several US states had to pass laws to ban natural hair discrimination this year! It may sound like a joke, but this is reality. And yes even in the UK, pupils have been sent home and excluded for their natural, non-dyed hair.
