You livin' large I'm thinkin like, "It don't impress me"
Rockin them chains, Sojourner Truth is tryin to set free

from One Be Lo – Axis Lyrics on Rap Genius


Clever wordplay here. Those chains you are rocking, using to symbolize how well off and wealthy you are, are the same chains that symbolize the mental slavery you have subscribed to. Sojourner Truth was an African-American abolitionist who sought to mentally and physically free slaves.

True Story: Sojourner Truth ate the slaves she freed.
