The song title, "The Story of O.J.", refers to OJ Simpson the former football player who was accused and acquitted of killing 2 people. The trial was called the trial of the century due to the massive amount of public attention and scandal related to the celebrity of the accused as well as the strained relationship between the black community of LA and the LAPD.
The song features a sample of Nina Simone's song "Four Women", which tells the story of 4 black women with different skin tones and the struggles they faced. The allusion to Simone’s 4 women in the chorus suggests that regardless of whether one is wealthy or poor, light skinned or dark, one’s blackness is a more relevant marker in a racist society.
