King Cotton,

from Lil B – King Cotton Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

King Cotton was a slogan used by southerners (1860–61) to support secession from the United States by arguing cotton exports would make an independent Confederacy economically prosperous, and—more important—would force Great Britain and France to support the Confederacy because their industrial economy depended on textiles derived from cotton.
