My brain the same
Yeah, nigga, at least he ain't insane
At least he ain't insane
You ain't crazy, motherfucker, you're just afraid of change
That's new, maybe that's true

from J. Cole – Rich Niggaz Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Cole is saying he’s no different than the “vanity slaves” but he never went insane and soon got back on the right track.

Just because some are living a destructive pattern does not make you a insane person(you can still control your thoughts). It just means we are scared to move out of our comfort zone and live a different lifestyle. New ways of thinking are scary to anyone until it is tried.

“The only thing to fear is fear itself”
