Aryan, blonde hair, blue-eyed like the Führer

from Pusha T (Ft. Rick Ross) – Hold On Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The Aryan Race is a racial grouping of Indo-European/Eurasian heritage. This grouping is known for its generally blonde hair and blue eyes. “Führer” is a German title for leader or guide. It is most notably known as the title Adolf Hitler used when he was the leader of Nazi-Germany from 1934-1945.

The Nazi party adopted “aryanism”, the belief that the Aryan Race was the “master” or “pure” race (hence the previous “purer” line about his cocaine). Hitler became dictator and the main instigator of World War II while carrying out his aryanist views by attempting to exterminate all peoples who were not of the Aryan race, most notably Jews and Slavs, in the Holocaust.

However, interestingly enough, Hitler did not himself fit the Aryan archetype, as he did not have blonde hair, though he did have blue eyes.

The “Aryan” and “Heights” combination is also reminiscent of a Nas line in “Triple Beam Dreams”:

Where I’m from ain’t far from Washington Heights to cop Aryan
