Just open up that cell, let my brother out of jail
I got money for the bail now, well now

Cole has mentioned his incarcerated brother before, Before I’m Gone and The World is Empty. This could also, alternatively, mean “brother” as a fellow black man, referring to the astounding numbers of African Americans incarcerated in this country.
