Light-skinned so the house niggas feel me

from J. Cole – Premeditated Murder Lyrics on Rap Genius


He appeals to all people; You can be from the hood or the suburbs where there are people usually live in homes and disconnected from the inner-city blacks. “house nigga"
During slavery, the lighter skinned blacks mostly worked in the slave master’s house, and were refferred to by the darker complexioned blacks that worked in the fields as "House Niggers"
This form of colorism still shows its affects among blacks today.

J. Cole is light complexioned so the “house niggas”/ light complexioned blacks would definitely feel where he’s coming from
