"Made in America"

On this touching Frank Ocean–featuring track from Jay and Kanye's Watch the Throne, Hov introduces his own brand of hood patriotism:

Built a republic, that still stands
I’m trying to lead a nation, to leave to my little mans
Or my daughter, so I’m boiling this water
The scales was lopsided, I’m just restoring order
