Yeah I hear ya mom
Yeah yeah, I don't wan' be broke when I'm 31

from Kanye West – Late Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Donda gave Kanye the “finish school” speech like our moms gave us!

But Kanye doesn’t want to still be paying off his school loans ten years after he graduates (and be practically broke at 31).

This could also be interpreted as his mother telling him that if he has no diploma or degree he could be earning minimum wage at age 31, a common mom speech.
