My mama didn't raise me up to be jealous-hearted
Like most of the winners call it

from Kendrick Lamar – Black Boy Fly Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kendrick, with the help of his mom, understood that hating on someonelse’s hustle got you nowhere. So he never wasted time on being jealous of these other guys who made it out. But in reality only the successful people call people in kendrick’s situation jealous because theyre now above wanting things that trivial and they lose sight of where they came from.
