"Shovel chestnuts in my path" (De La Soul – Me Myself And I) | accepted

Given the previous lines about racial identity and separation within the African-American community based on complexion (darkness), it’s likely that Posdonus is referring to Charles Chesnutt, an influential writer (1858-1932) who identified as African-American (and who contributed greatly to Black culture) despite being able to pass for white.

"I'll take your girlfriend and put that pussy on a pedestal" (Kendrick Lamar – Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe) | accepted

Actually, “pussy on a pedestal” was, to my knowledge, first used in Eddie Murphy’s classic stand up show, Raw (1987). It’s more likely that Kendrick is referring to Raw, as the special has been referenced by by many rappers (Kanye, Jay-Z, etc).

Also, it makes more sense within the context of the song, given its ties to culture.
