Everybody look at you strange, say you changed
Uhh! Like you work that hard to stay the same
Kinda a shot at those who say Jay has changed and isn’t as street and shit he used to be so they look at him strangely. Here he’s putting it to rest saying that he’ve worked so hard to get out the hood and illegal life (drug dealing, ect).
“Like you work that hard to stay the same” is sarcastic.
