You live in a basement, me, I'm in a castle
And since I'm a drop-out, that's my cap and tassel
Very good multi syllable word play and juxtaposition exhibited here.
Joe juxtaposes (compares two things) a college graduate and drop out side by side. He plays on the fact he was a drop out but lives in a mansion, yet the college graduate still lives in his mothers basement.
