We so high, upper echelon (Straight up)
We so fuckin' high, upper echelon (Damn)

from Travis Scott (Ft. 2 Chainz & T.I.) – Upper Echelon Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Upper Echelon refers to being high ranking, like in the army. It’s really difficult to be considered of this level, so if you are it’s something to definitely note.

The way Travis uses it here, however, it has a double meaning. Not only are him and his labelmates in the upper echelon of rappers, they are also high off of drugs.
