Coming from a city where dreams get shredded, I'm goin off credit, these niggas need debit
Big Sean says it is hard to achieve your dreams of being rich and famous in Detroit, so that there is little chance for someone to move upward, in economic terms, in the ranks of society.
However, he is a living example of an exception: someone who accomplished something big when all the odds were against him. He now has enough credit cards to buy whatever he wishes for, while the people he grew up with in Detroit still can’t afford credit cards and have to use debit instead.
Eminem is also from Detroit, and in his movie 8 Mile you can see how he had to struggle to break through in the rap scene as well, but he is now one of the most well known rappers of the decade.
