Real nigga, nigga real

Meaning

Keeping it real is a very common theme in Hip Hop. This term was used heavily by Wu Tang Clan and other Hip Hop groups.

To put it in context it means that you are being you. For example if you lived a life that consisted of criminal activities and you rap about it then in effect you are keeping it real. Another example would be someone who is interested in astronomy rapping about the stars.

The philosophy is simple you talk about what you lived.
