Nor will I sacrifice live style to benefit jury temperament

from Aesop Rock – Labor Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

During jury selection prosecutors usually look for “normal” folks who are unlikely to hold any radical views or have non-normative lifestyles or experiences that might lead them to swing the case in an unexpected way. Aesop is saying that he won’t compromise who he is, what he does, or what he believes to fit the mold of such “upstanding citizens.”
