Your lease is up at the crib, house niggas get evicted

from Common – The Bitch In Yoo Lyrics on Rap Genius


In slave times, the “house negro” was the “good negro” who followed the white man’s orders and got to live in the house. The counterpart to the “field negro.”

“House” in this context is a pun with “evicted.”
