Earl Stevens had us thinking rational
Earl Stevens is E-40’s real name. Kendrick uses “rational” sarcastically, pointing out how rap songs gave him and his homies un-realistic ambitions of wealth. They’re thinking rational in terms of obtaining money, but ironically their dreams of getting rich are irrational because they’ll likely never attain it. Irrational as a money tree…
Don’t buy yourself a $85,000 car before you buy yourself a house.
