Didn't understand the dream of a King, do the math
Coincidentally on your birthdays I ditched the class
Cause the younger me, dumber me was chasin' the cash
Chasin' the ass, lowlife with his face in the grass
When he was in school, when they would do lesson in tribute to Martin Luther King, he would cut class; which now he looks back on and recognises how disrespectful his actions were.
He also recognises how niave he was when he was young. Only caring for money,girls etc. and not really going anywhere in life.
