    There is a cryptic message and story in this song, that attribute to the sexual abuse Nicki's niece had to endure in the hands of her stepfather(Nickis brother)
    in the verse "she got the scars they serve as reminders blood still on her pajamas" in the court trial against Gelani, the girls stained pajama was used as prime evidence in the rape case, it was a mixture of her blood and his semen/DNA. They also performed a rape test after that violent night which proved that she was raped, the "scars" in the lyrics. "plotting..scheming to defend all of your Violent nights" refers to his defense against witness testimony. Witness statements from her brother; he would often see gelani entering his sisters bedroom in the middle of the night while everybody else was asleep and would leave a long while later. "Promise me you will see" = Swear on oath as witness in court. "thankyou for all of the heroes of the night" her brother is a hero, he defended his sister on one occasion against gelani. He had her captive in the basement with the lights off one night as he was abusing her. Her brother walked in and gelani threatened him to keep quiet about the situation, was the hero of the night.. "the lie is wearing off" that night he got caught red handed and that pajama the little girl was wearing that night was the evidence that put him behind bars. No lie could get him out of that one. Kanye is a genius for this one I have to give it to him he even got Nicki Minaj on the track. Its astonishing that not much people read between the lines, kanye also made it personal for his Daughter, for a man who has Daughters he feels the pain that happened to this young girl.

    I feel like it's about that he had to have a daughter to realise how bad the media depicted women. That he somehow regrets how he talked about women back then and how he is unlearning all those traits and is trying to tell men that they can't just hate women because of them rejecting you. To basically just see women as humans as well yourself and as a normal person.
