See, them cats you hanging with now, is who you are
And they’ll become their parents, so look at them and decide if that’s who you wanna be
Honestly, think about their qualities
You’re probably exhibiting parts of these people’s behaviors chronically

from Tonedeff (Ft. Anetra) – Children Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The people you hang out with (Your friends) are a reflection of who you are. As you grow up you become more like your parents. Tone is asking us (The listeners) to take a look at your friends and ask yourself if that’s who you want to be when you’re older. As you spend more time with your friends, you subconsciously begin to act or talk the way they do, without even noticing it.
