D.A. try to give a nigga shaft again
Half a mil' for bail cause I'm African

from Jay Z – 99 Problems Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The D.A. sets the bail high because Jay’s black, and therefore considered a higher flight risk. It’s also based on the assumption that Jay wouldn’t have or want to use the assets to make a bail that high.
