Face it, Jerome get more time than Brandon

from Kanye West (Ft. Kid Cudi & Raekwon) – Gorgeous Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kanye alludes to the 100:1 disparity of crack vs cocaine sentencing that some say targets Blacks. However, recent federal laws have changed to reduce this disparity to 16:1!.

If this guy gets caught with drugs, he’ll most likely get some probation time. Because his name is Brandon a.k.a. generic white kid.


If these guys gets caught with drugs, they’ll be spending more time with the Pokey than Gumby. You know… because they’re black.


Doesn’t that guy on the right look like James Pickens Jr. from Grey’s Anatomy?


Also, Kanye loves Jerome. It’s not a coincidence that he picked this name:

I got my fur on feelin' like Jerome

-From Illest Motherfucker Alive

Jerome’s in the house, watch your mouth
Jerome’s in the house, watch your mouth

-From the more recent Bound 2
