And, hi there ho what do ya know I'm ridin'
In the same streets my pops died in

from Lil Wayne – Dedication 2 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Wayne’s father, also Dwayne Carter, was absent from Wayne’s life from an early age. “Dead” to the rapper, he thinks of Birdman as his real father and asserts no connection to his lost dad. Now that he is successful, he ironically stunts in the same New Orleans streets where his father disappeared, becoming a legend against all odds.
