Man a war tribal over colors
Over money, over land, and over oil, and over god
And over idols, and even lovers
Over breakfast, over dinner, over suppers
Over jungle, over rema, over buckers

from Nas (Ft. Damian Marley & K'naan) – Tribes At War Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

African tribal warfare happens over so many reasons, from religion to territory. Since the european countries that once colonized these nations split the continent up so poorly, many rival tribes are within the same country, which causes civil war.

Yeah… the African map doesn’t look like that
