"See they never say they love you in the present tense" (Isaiah Rashad – Part III) | accepted

The common opinion that people don’t matter unless they die. The struggles that put Trayvon Martin in the grave and subsequently got major media coverage and the ones that Barack Obama addresses nationally don’t get discovered at a local level.

"Fishscale, cut well, you won't find Nemo" (Isaiah Rashad – Shot You Down (Remix)) | accepted

Nemo represents childhood and innocence. While Nemo had fishscales, the Fishscale Q is talking about has no hint of innocence in it.

"Gotta keep your hands in the cart, know you stealing stuff" (Isaiah Rashad – Ronnie Drake) | accepted

That’s also a reference to the stereotypical black person being too poor to afford things.

"If you ain't prejudice you still a nemesis" (Joey BADA$$ – Hardknock) | pending

This is a conspiracy theory as well. Joey believes that if you’re a senator and not prejudice, you side with the people these politicians are prejudice against.

A good example of this is Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey with an astounding approval rating. He was controversially left out of a major Republican event last year.

"You know, you might have seen him around, maybe never see..." (Tyga – The Potential) | pending

This might be a reference to how underground rappers can be known in their city (“you might have seen him around”), but unknown on a large scale.

"I probably shouldn’t explain nothin' / Not in the double-..." (Jean Grae – Double Katanas) | pending

I see the line as Jean saying that she shouldn’t explain things that don’t need explanations.

"Young Money navy" (Tyga – My Glory) | pending

An army is a standing force at home. A navy is a force overseas. Tyga is saying that he reps GED, but it’s YMCMB getting his music out across the world.

"They real black like won't show up on your camera phone /..." (Childish Gambino – Backpackers) | accepted

Note the extended double meaning of real black here. In the first two lines, he uses real black in reference to skin tone. In the next two, he uses it in reference to validity.

"Laughed at my rise like my motion was funny / Yes, ashy t..." (Childish Gambino – Be Alone) | rejected

The lotion is money in the sense that he was ashy (lower class). When he want to classy, the lotion represents the money, which made him classy, the same way lotion helps ashiness.

"Cole World... DJ Khaled!" (DJ Khaled – Hell's Kitchen) | accepted

Cole World was the title of Cole’s first album.
