I'm trying to get us "us free" like Cinque

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z & J. Ivy) – Never Let Me Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

J. Ivy wants to free the people much like Joseph Cinque did in the 1800’s when he lead other slaves in a revolt against the Amistad

This was dramatized in the movie of the same name, Amistad in which the character Joseph Cinque repeats, “give us, us free”
