Stuffing dead prezzies in the wall like
The Yale bitch.
Like the drug money Pusha T’s trying to hide, Yale grad student Annie Le’s corpse was stuffed into a wall:
Pusha would later defend this line on “Changing Of The Guards.”
I’ll be damned if I let Yale campus vilify
As I uplift this art form ceiling high
I can’t identify, with your one death
We lose thousands over here, you speakin' one breath
This makes an interesting point (also on the “Changing of the Guard” explanation): thousands die in the city without any recognition, yet when a Yale student is killed, it makes the news.
However, this also has the implication that one life (Annie Le’s) is unimportant, so, well, your mileage may vary.
One could also argue that the reason this line caused controversy was not to do with him “making light” of the incident, but for referring to a high-profile murder victim as “the Yale bitch”.
