Maybe should have stayed but it ain't yo fault
Too much pressure, I peel off, I'm sorry
Was young and had to choose between you
And what the rest of the world might offer me, shit what would you do
He is apologizing for leaving his baby mama due to the fact that he was under too much pressure and he thinks the world could’ve offered him more than staying with her and his son

He admits he fell off because he was intrigued by what the rest of the world had to offer rather than maintain the relationship he had with his childhood love of Hip-Hop. That explains why he tried his hand at acting and singing. What would you do if possibilities abound and your current situation is no longer interesting or challenging anymore?
