a2508029773_10.jpg

The Haggis Horns will release their fourth studio album in September 2017 and as a little teaser, they drop a summer single worldwide on June 9th via their own Haggis Records, a feel good bouncing hip-hop/funk jam featuring guest UK MC/rapper Doc Brown. Think back to the dawn of hip-hop in the early 1980s when the first rap singles featured the Sugarhill Records house band laying down heavy funk grooves for MCs like The Furious Five and Treacherous 3 and you get the flavour.

“Somewhere there was a little girl
Who didn’t have to fight to be
So she decided to be a fighter to be
She wore the armor for the sake of others
For the sake of those who won’t remember
Those who won’t notice
But it’s alright mother
No dont cry mother
She is the one with a sword made of faith
Heart of light you are
Heart of conqueror you rise
Heart of fire so bright (rock the casbah)
You will fly not too far away (rock the casbah)
Woman, woman of power soldier of love
She saw it once
She saw the salvation long before Cause she carried it
A true soldier using what nature gave her to succeed
Heart of light you are
Heart of conqueror you rise
Heart of fire so bright (rock the casbah)
You will fly not too far away(rock the casbah)
Many many man tend to think they Know who she is who she was who she’s meant to be
But the truth is at the end of the day there is no word there is a million
She is strong fearless wild and Cold
She is a mother wife lady a Sister a friend
She is combative conquerant
A symbol for others
A flower in the desert
A colour in the dark
She was free to fight
She was free to live
She was from the beginning and always be til the end
Mother earth gave her the choice between be and do
But instead she chose not to choose but to do
She is bold sincere one of a kind
Never neglect her feminity for any divine
She defies and and denies the right for some to be in
Body and soul kahina is never defeated
She will turn to ashes every city every town
Never back down never slow down never fret
She is a desert storm blowing out injustice
Beware Beware here comes the Shero
Beware Beware here comes the Shero”
