You know what some people put themselves through
To look just like you?
Dark stocking, high heels, lipstick, alla that

from Black Star (Ft. Talib Kweli & Yasiin Bey) – Brown Skin Lady Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This song is more than just a tribute to the beauty of brown skin ladies. Talib here knows that not only a the brown skinned beautiful, but they are natural “indigenous” and don’t need products to be beautiful. Like copper tone, many beauty products strive to give white women the beauty that brown skin ladies are born with.
