I keep that GOAT book on the ottoman

from Kanye West (Ft. Consequence & Talib Kweli) – Chain Heavy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

GOAT was a book about Mohammed Ali publish by Taschen in 2004.This line continues the List of Great but Controversial Black Men of the last two lines and then reminds of how we can grow to love someone we’ve once hated for being a loudmouth (Kan-I mean, er, Ali) and just how far black people have come in America (from chattel slavery to cultural icons).
