In his second verse, Pusha makes a reference to reports that the Statue of Liberty was originally supposed to be a black woman as a celebration of overcoming slavery.They'll never re-write this, like they re-wrote history
The fact that the Statue of Liberty was black is a goddamn mystery
And so it goes, every truth don't get told
Pusha explained in a Genius
"I have a friend who is a teacher. We grew up together. She used to rap with us as a collective, in Star Trak. She was actually signed to Whitney Houston's label early on.
She told me, The Statue of Liberty basically it was modeled after an African woman. It was too much for whoever the powers they be and they were like, 'Nah, you gotta send that back. Redo that.' That wowed me."
