In sheepskin coats, I silence the lambs
Do you know who I am, Clarice?

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

Meaning

Hov puns here on the movie The Silence of the Lambs, since he wears coats that sheep had to die for. Clarice Starling, played by Jodie Foster, is the protagonist of the film, and carries early traumatic memories of sheep being slaughtered at her relative’s farm.
