All-black everything, nigga you know my fresh code
I’m out here fighting for you, don’t increase my stressload!

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z) – Murder to Excellence Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay-Z is saying that people should be able to conclude from his “all black everything” dress code that he’s anti-black on black violence. He’s fighting for the black man to progress but their actions are only making it harder for him (increasing his stressload).

Hov was undoubtedly inspired by Johnny Cash, the original man in black, who discusses in the song of that name the reason for his choice of clothing (in homage to the downtrodden — a fairly similar reason as Jay)
