I’m back like a baby daddy during tax season. A lot has happened since the last time we spoke. Too much to cover, but the ongoing theme is, ‘Corny Rappers Will Corny Rap.’ But we’re not going to focus on them numb-nuts. We are going to focus on one year. Yes, it’s been one year since we were told to get in formation. A year ago, megastar Beyoncé, stood on a New Orleans Police car with her Black power fist and told us “I just might be a Black Bill Gates in the making.” We were in awe as a little boy danced in front of the police, while they had their hands up. This video and song is everything and more. To the typical ‘Pop fan,’ they won’t get it. But to Black people, Black women in particular, this is what we needed to hear.

Lemonade (iTunes)

Lemonade is a beverage that’s nice and sweet after some bitter lemons are mixed with water and sugar. And that perfectly describes Beyoncé’s sixth album, Lemonade. Beyoncé’s Lemonade takes the bitterness and betrayal of her relationships with both her father and husband, raw emotions (water), and the sweet taste of forgiveness (sugar). From a Stan point of view, this album is perfect. Enough said. But from a critical perspective this is truly Beyoncé’s best work.

“Okay ladies, now let’s get in formation.” The queen is back and so unapologetically Black. And boy do I love it. For years I waved my Beyhive flag and told folks that Beyoncé is not only proud to be Black, but showcases it every chance she gets. And child let me tell you about the long non-researched dissertations, the faux-intellects try to use. Oh, she doesn’t care about Black struggles. Um, according to Google she spent 7 million on a housing apartments to house victims of Katrina. Oh, but what about lately? You mean when she went and paid the bail of the Black Lives Matter activists or recently when she donated 1.5 million to the said cause. Face it. Beyoncé is what you faux Pro-Black folks been crying about who you needed, but was too busy with your lousy rumors to pay attention. And well, I bet she got your attention now.
