Got a nice crib but I'm outstanding like Mr. Wendal

from Wale – Arrival Lyrics on Rap Genius


Wale may also be referencing Mr. Wendal, from the song by by Arrested Development. That corresponds with the previous line that mentions everyday people. The song talks about a homeless man who doesn’t have the worries of politics and corruption and war, but rather his only worries are his day to day tasks, and his health. The ‘outstanding’ part, may refer to how homeless individuals stand outside.
