, give me a minute, ohhhhh I can't be tardy
My class is already started, they told my mom I'm retarded
Chance often references being late to class. This time he talks about how his teachers have already expressed their disappointment to his mother. Chano was telling someone to get him his shoes as he realized he was late for school, transitioning in from the previous line mentioning “tennis”
This also brings up the lack of support and value he gets from his teachers as instead of trying to bolster Chance, they just assume he’s retarded.
