They seen my pigment and thought that was the ign'ance
Unfortunately I am not that type of niglet

from A$AP Rocky (Ft. Action Bronson, Big KRIT, Danny Brown, Joey BADA$$, Kendrick Lamar & Yelawolf) – 1 Train Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

People see the color of his skin and they hear his name (Joey Bada$$), and automatically assume that he’s ignorant. Even though he is a young, black and rebellious, he isn’t an ignorant criminal as many suburban whites would characterize most young black males as. This is unfortunate for his haters who would hope that he is uninformed and unwise.

Possible homage to Nas on “The Don”. This is also a nod to the top named author on the track, who described similar ignorance on track 1 of this album and letting the world know, it ain’t here.
