Even though it’s black top from the mayor to the cops
Black blood still gets spilled
Even though black people (not white people, like in New York) run the city, it still doesn’t feel any better to Killer Mike: black men are still killing each other at tragic rates.
“Black top” has a double meaning: “black top” like the black concrete used in the construction of many city playgrounds, but also “black top” as in blacks at the top of the social hierarchy.
