Blame it on the pigment, we living no limits

from Kanye West (Ft. Big Sean & Jay Z) – Clique Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

African Americans have been historically oppressed and marginalized, so are more likely to show wealth and act outside of the system.

Ye saying “no limits” also sets up the following Master P line, the latter being the founder of No Limit Records.

No limits also refers to the fact that there are NO limits on the black card.

Throughout the majority of the verse, Ye is alluding to the fact that he will keep spending money regardless of what other successful black people say (like Spike Lee). As is the case with most pursuits of material wealth, the law of diminishing marginal utility grants less and less satisfaction to each unit of additional gain. Eventually the curve will increase at such a minuscule rate over time, it will never reach the limit of the expected satisfaction return on wealth. In calculus terms, the limit does not exist and creates a discontinuous function. It is at this point on the Cartesian Plane where Ye is living.

(overly technical) REEEEE-JOINDER!!! Eventually the curve will increase at such a minuscule rate over time, it will never reach the limit of the expected satisfaction return on wealth. In calculus terms, the limit does not exist and creates a discontinuous function.

This entire statement is mathematically inconsistent. The law of diminishing returns specifically suggests that the expected satisfaction return on wealth goes to zero as the endowment goes to infinity. So the limit does exist (either zero, in terms of return, or U_0, in terms of utility). The utility function is still continuous, it just approaches a horizontal asymptote.
