Top peeled back
A raisin in the sun; a nigga still black

from Troy Ave (Ft. Pusha T) – Concrete Jungle Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Pusha with the top down resembles a raisin in the sun; they’re both dark-skinned.

“A raisin in the sun” is a line from Langston Hughes’s poem, “Harlem”, and the title of a play by Lorraine Hansberry.

“Harlem” ponders the outcome of a deferred dream. With “a nigga still black”, Pusha might be responding to it’s line of questioning, meaning that despite his success he is still stigmatized for his race.
