What Is Hip?

Lyrics

So ya wanna dump out yo' trick bag.
Ease on in a hip thang,
But you ain't exactly sure what is hip.

So you started to let your hair grow.

Lenny Williams is hipness I am a boomer who knows what's hip. If you have to ask you'll find out when you are old and gray. Then it'll be way to late.
