Deitrick Haddon – Hood Heaven

Share

Deitrick Haddon’s “Hood Heaven” isn’t just a song; it’s a captivating soundscape that transcends traditional gospel narratives. It delves into the complexities of faith, hope, and finding solace in unexpected places, all while weaving a story set against the backdrop of the often-misunderstood environment of the “hood.”

The song opens with a simple yet evocative statement: “Be. Is oh you.” These cryptic words pique curiosity and set the stage for a journey beyond the surface. Haddon’s voice carries a sense of introspection and vulnerability, inviting listeners to look beyond stereotypes and preconceived notions.

As the song progresses, the lyrics shift to paint a picture of struggle and hardship: “Lost my way, fell on my face, thought I was done, thought it was all in vain.” These raw words capture the despair and disillusionment that can grip individuals facing challenges, particularly those navigating the complexities of life in the “hood.”

However, “Hood Heaven” isn’t a story of defeat; it’s a testament to the enduring power of faith and the possibility of finding redemption even in the most unexpected places. The lyrics transition to, “But then I heard a whisper, sayin’ ‘Son, your fight ain’t over.'” This powerful shift signifies a turning point. The voice, whether divine or a representation of inner strength, offers a glimmer of hope and the promise of a brighter future.

Hood Heaven by Deitrick Haddon Lyrics

I fell in love with a stripper
She got paid
Because she knew how to work that body
But all of a sudden she changed
She went down to the church and got saved
She looked over at me and said it’s your turn
I said a sinner like me is gone burn
She said what did you do that was so wrong
I said baby that list is too long
Ay that’s when I said a prayer on my knees
Said grandma would you put a word in for me
I did things so I could survive in the streets
Please give heaven a message for me

Tell him I don’t need a mansion
I’m happy just to make it in
Let me sweep the floors
To work off my sins
I don’t need VIP
Put me in the back and I’ll be good
I’ll be satisfied if heaven got a hood

Heaven got a hood
Heaven got a hood

Now my main girl is a believer
I think it’s time for me to have a come to Jesus
And my side chick be telling me to leave her
But heaven ain’t letting in cheaters
Gonna follow my heart and do the right thing
Gonna drop to my knees and give her that ring
Gonna let all the other girls go
Gonna walk on that straight and narrow

I don’t need a mansion
I’m happy just to make it in
Let me sweep the floors
To work off my sins
I don’t need VIP
Put me in the back and I’ll be good
I’ll be satisfied if heaven got a hood

Heaven got a hood
Heaven got a hood

God knows I haven’t been always right
I’m just a sinner trying to win the fight
And my credit ain’t too good to afford one of those mansions
But if you let me in I’ll be satisfied in hood heaven

Heaven got a hood
Heaven got a hood
Heaven got a hood
Heaven got a hood
