And I'm feeling like the world's at my neck
When your revenue's sufficient you just work for respect

from Wale (Ft. Aaron Wess & Rick Ross) – The Show Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Something every musician feels, especially rappers. Wale feels like he’s in the struggle and the world really isn’t lending a helping hand. On the second line he touches how he’s made enough money with his career to just relax and chill, but he has to keep grinding and making music so to the streets and his fans he doesnt “fall off”
