If anyone tried to do the math they'd probably be mad as fuck
Said I'd never amount to shit, now they trying to add it up

from Joe Budden (Ft. Ab-Soul) – Cut From a Different Cloth Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

When Budden was an up and coming rapper, he like most other unknown rappers was told that he would never amount to anything and to give up because his rap career was going nowhere but now that he has finally made it big, everyone is pissed off because they are jealous and are wondering how its possible.

POSSIBILITYÈ

He might be saying that they’re going mad trying to find out because he honestly can’t even figure out how he made it so big.

Also, no matter how many numbers you add together or what type of math you do, it will never equal “shit”. Maybe they should ask Mos Def about this, since he’s the master of Mathematics
