Guess what? Streets all paper
And me I'm praying for probation
Like my ancestors prayed for segregation
Lil Wayne wrote this verse while awaiting sentencing for a weapons conviction. His opening line is sarcastically optimistic — “Guess What? There is a lot of money ("paper”) to be made right now"
Unfortunately he’s caught up praying that he gets probation instead of jail time, a situation comparable to slaves praying for Jim crow style oppression — a bad, but better situation
OR — is it “Streets OFF Paper”, as in his friend T-streets is off papers (probation)? Meanwhile, Wayne is begging for the papers because he was trying to avoid jail time..
