You find out who's ya mans when you broke
Like a bad joke it's funny when you on you got mad folk

from MF DOOM (Ft. Pebbles the Invisible Girl) – The M.I.C. Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

You find out who your true friends are when you’re at your worst because they don’t leave you.

When you on, or when your time to shine is happening, everyone is your friend but some of them might be friends with you only because of your riches and fame.

This is one of life’s bad jokes because it’s funny how you have true friends when you have no ends but when you have money you’re surrounded by phony.
