Three Six got an Oscar, it's all okay

from Childish Gambino (Ft. Heems) – Tell Me Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It was a huge moment for rap music when Three Six Mafia won an Oscar for their music in Hustle and Flow

In this passage, Gambino is lampooning those who claiming that Obama’s election indicates a new era of racial harmony in the U.S. There may be a black president, Kanye West may be a huge pop star, and a hip hop group may have won an Oscar, but it’s still hard out there for a pimp.
