Triple shade of black that my bleach should never fade me

from Robert Glasper (Ft. Yasiin Bey) – Black Radio Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Bleach diminishes, or whitens, color when we do laundry. Bleach is also a deadly chemical. But Bey is “triple shade of black” so his blackness can’t be diminished or whitened.

On the same black national consciousness tip, Bey’s debut album was titled “Black on Both Sides.”
