I realize deep down you a coward getting high off of power

from J. Cole – Rich Niggaz Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Some people are scared they’ll lose their dreams and goals if they act like the real them, and they need power to make up for it. They get addicted to this lifestyle and are quickly getting high off of it and cannot stop the urge for the power, so they continue to mask the real person inside of them.
