Hate On Me
Jill Scott

Wonder if I gave you diamonds
Out of my own womb
Would you feel the love in that,
Or ask "why not the moon"?

If I gave you sanity
For the whole of humanity,

Had all the solutions
For the pain and pollution

No matter where I live,
Despite the things I give,
You'll always be this way
So go 'head and....

Hate on me, hater
Now or later
'Cuz I'm gonna do me
You'll be mad, baby
(Go 'head and hate)
Go 'head and hate on me, hater
'Cuz I'm not afraid of it
What I got I paid for
You can hate on me

You cannot hate on me
'Cuz my mind is free
Feel my destiny
So shall it be

Vocal prowess, a poet, stellar performances, Jill Scott's the real thing!

"Jill Scott is a Grammy award winning American R&B, soul, and jazz singer, songwriter, actress and poet."(1)

"Jill Scott grew up in north Philadelphia and began her performing career reading her own poetry. She was heard by Amir, drummer in the Roots, who invited her to join the band in the studio, resulting in the co-composition "You Got Me," a Top 40 pop hit in 1999. Subsequently, she collaborated with Eric Benet, Will Smith, and Common and broadened her performing experience by touring Canada in a production of the Broadway musical Rent. Signed to Steve McKeever's newly formed Hidden Beach Recordings label, she released her debut album, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1, in July 2000. Experience: Jill Scott 826+ appeared the following summer and hot on the heels of the "A Long Walk" single. Scott's starpower soared over the next year, eventually earning her a Grammy nomination in early 2003 for "Best Female Vocal Performance" for "A Long Walk." Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds, Vol. 2 followed in 2004."  ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide (2)
