Erykah is beautiful, talented, and has a way with words. Here are some of the best quotes and lyrics that prove she is superior than most.
"We as Black people have to tell our own stories. We have to document our history. When we allow someone else to document our history, the history becomes twisted, and we get written out. We get our noses blown off."
"I planned my success. I knew it was going to happen."
"I picks my friends like I pick my fruit/& Ganny told me that when I was only a youth/ I don't walk around trying to be what I'm not/ I don't waste my time trying ta get what you got." -"Apple Tree"
"Society has a problem with female nudity when it is not . . . when it is not packaged for the consumption of male entertainment. Then it becomes confusing."
"But now I realize that this record business really needs me. No one else is trying to take a chance or do something different."
"I think people who vibrate at the same frequency vibrate toward each other. They call it - in science - sympathetic vibrations."
"I live in a queendom, ruled by a womb-iverse."
"I was born to make mistakes. I ain't scared to take the weight." - "Didn't Cha Know."
"I mean, that's a big part of our existence here on earth, the personal relationship we have with the person that we love, with the person that we make love to, with the person that we share our lives with. We expect a lot of things back from our loved one, and the lesson is to accept and not expect."
"I'm free. I just do what I want, say what I want, say how I feel, and I don't try to hurt nobody. I just try to make sure that I don't compromise my art in any kind of way, and I think people respect that."
