I got bags under my eyes, keep 'em tucked under shades

from The Alchemist (Ft. Meyhem Lauren) – Crushed Kremlin Lyrics on Rap Genius


This is a really cool line having to do with the theme of making money. First, Meyhem says he’s tired from working so hard because he has “bags under his eyes”. A double meaning of bags develops through the line when he mentions that he keeps them “Tucked under shades” (suggesting the bags are full of money and he’s trying to hide them)

The Shades could double in meaning as well, and refer to his eyelids closing as he gets some much needed sleep.
