All my niggas is mobsters, all my bitches is doctors

from J. Cole – Miss America Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Just in case any of his “mobster” crew gets shot up, he’s got tons of female doctors present.

Interesting that J. Cole both promotes female success and intelligence (all my bitches is doctors) while at the same time demeaning them unintentionally (bitches). As we all know, bitch = bad. There’s a possible allusion to the show Mob Doctor which connects the two halves of this line.

In rap it is almost tradition for rappers to brag about how dangerous (gang-affiliated) their peers are and how desirable their women are. However, in this case J. Cole schools his male counterparts by bragging about how educated his “bitches” are, that is genius, it’s almost as if he is suggesting his listeners to seek intelligent women as opposed to voluptuous women. Definitely food for thought.

Could J.Cole also be alluding to the fact that a lot more black women than black men are going to college. Therefore they don’t stay behind on the streets and have the oppurtunity to become a doctor while the men, still on the streets, only have the option to turn to a life of crime or low paying jobs.

Cole in this line eludes to the fact that if you “ flip the script” you’re more likely to have better record sales. Rappers who rap about their homies being killers and their females being of a higher standard usually are more commercially celebrated.
