Jiggaboos'll minstrel you but never me
Blackface my black face could never be
A “jiggaboo” is a black man with strong, stereotypically “Black” facial features (big lips, nappy hair). In these lines, KRIT also references “blackface” makeup and minstrel shows, shows put on by White actors who used black face paint as part of comedy to portray a stereotypical Black character. Essentially, with these lines, Big KRIT is refusing to conform to the typical Black and hip-hop stereotypes.
