It's just real Black History
Robert LeRoy Ripley

from Jay Electronica – Patents of Nobility Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In reference to the last line about the Zulu scam, Jay is not here to predict the date of the end, but to link the people with his roots. He carries the torch from his ancient past with pride.

The mention of Robert Ripley (no doubt alluding to his eponymous TV/ comic series), just furthers the strangeness, and the reality, of the black history that Jay speaks of.
