A trunk full of coke rental car from Avis
My momma used to say only Jesus can save us
Well momma I know I act a fool
But I'll be gone 'til November I got packs to move I hope
Kanye’s (or the fictitious protagonist’s) mother believes that God has the answers we all seek eventually. Kanye’s response: “sorry, but I’ve got a rental car here full of cocaine, and it’s not going to sell itself.”
“Gone ‘Til November” was a song that Wyclef Jean wrote about about a dealer going down south to sell drugs
“Well momma I know I act a fool,” is taken directly from “Hey Mama” (Late Registration). Kanye’s said before that he wrote “Hey Mama” before “Jesus Walks”.
This fictional protagonist as mentioned could be a reference to an episode towards the end of season 1 of “The Wire” in which D'Angelo Barksdale is caught with a rental car (from Avis) with a trunk full of cocaine.
