She a redbone but her cousin is dark
“Redbone” is slang for a person that is of mixed race, usually a light-skinned black woman
It’s equivalent to “yellow bone”, a term used recently by a certain hot new rapper
This used to be insulting, but now women with light skin are often considered more attractive, which is the case here — CyHi is with a pretty light-skinned girl but her darker-skinned, less-attractive cousin is tagging along
DARK GIRLS: Don’t put up with the bullshit. Rap Genius editors don’t give a fuck about skin color!
