Now a penthouse, you can call me Hi-Top

from Rick Ross (Ft. Lloyd) – Street Life Lyrics on Rap Genius


This is a pun, as the penthouse is the top, most expensive apartment or room in an apartment building or hotel. He’s saying he’s at the top of the game, so he’s in the penthouse, and he’s so rich, that he’s in the penthouse. Hi-Tops are shoes with “high tops”, further playing on the fact that’s he’s at the very top.
