Hold up, hold fast. we make more cash
Now tell my momma I belong in that slow class
Similar to the rebuke of marking a child as retarded in the film Forrest Gump, Kanye displays his income as proof that he should have been placed in honors classes.
This is also a comment on a flaw in conventional schooling — children who are highly talented in one respect but not in another, who may act out, be uninterested or be challenged for one reason or another, are placed in slow classes because it is easier on teachers and doing so may earn the school more money.
One can infer that Kanye would prefer schools to cater to the talents of that individual and work with them, rather than immediately dismissing and grouping them as slow.
