I'm representin' for the seat where Rosa Parks sat
Where Malcolm X was shot, where Martin Luther was popped

from Jay Z – The Ruler's Back Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Rosa Parks is famous for violating the rules set against black people in the in the 40s, when she sat in a bus seat. At the time, black could seat but had to stand up if a white person wanted that spot.

Do I really need to tell who Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr are?
