'Keep it 3hunna' is the catchphrase of Chief Keef, also from Chicago, so the intent of the line is really just a shout-out. He's mixed things up in the past for the sake of forcing a rhyme (romans/trojans sounds a lot better than spartans/trojans or grecians/trojans), but I doubt that he actually doesn't know the difference.

Such as the ones referring Parkinson's.
I believe Yeezy uses lines like this, the one about asian pussy, and many of the other """offensive""" lyrics to show that he's still an ignorant black guy who has no intention of conforming to the expectations of a successful and influential musician.
