Saw my old teacher and she asked how I'm livin'

from J. Cole – Niggaz Know Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

We’ve all experienced that awkward moment when you run into an old teacher and you don’t know what to say. Cole on the other hand, had plenty to tell them. Depending on whether or not this teacher believed in Cole’s dreams, they may not have predicted he would end up successful. Nevertheless, Cole is probably making more money than this teacher anyway, so who cares!
