At my arraignment, screaming
All us blacks got is sports and entertainment, and a belief in
Religion as the answer to the grieving
Believing that the blessed get test and the less get even

from Oddisee – Way In Way Out Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Oddisee is paying homage to Jay-Z.

From Reasonable Doubt’s “Can’t Knock The Hustle,”

At my arraignment, screaming
All us blacks got is sports and entertainment, until we even
Thieving, as long as I’m breathing
Can’t knock the way a nigga eating — fuck you even!

However, while Jigga lays out African-Americans' occupational trio as sport, entertainment, and hustling, Oddisee replaces hustling with religion.
