How you sellin’ the shit our people is diggin’ for
Diamonds, cotton, that belong to niggas though
Diamonds are currently the result of slave labor in Africa, thus, Game is equating it to slavery days in America when slaves would pick cotton for white slave masters. Both diamonds and cotton are similar in that the hard work to get it was put in by blacks, but whites reaped the monetary benefits of that work.
