5. Why is Kanye keeping it 300?
Ye’s ‘Black Skinhead’ features a reference to 300 in its hook: “I keep it 300, like the Romans / 300 b****s, where the Trojans?“. There’s multiple allusions here: firstly, to the same-titled comic book and its film adaption '300'. Secondly, to the expression “keeping it 100%”, only Kanye is saying he keeps it 300%. Thirdly, a coded shoutout to Chief Keef, who appears on another album track, “Hold My Liquor”.
