One of the few who had his pops out the whole block
Told me never to settle or let the dough stop
Leave here with as much as you can hold Sky
And point blank 'em if they ever come at yo' tie

Meaning

Skyzoo was one of the few people in the neighborhood who had his father around while growing up. His dad gave him a few rules to the game:

  1. Never settle for less.
  2. Don’t run out of money.
  3. Get all you can out of life.
  4. Dead anyone who tries to come at your neck. If they attack, you attack back harder.
