Look, 5 dollars won’t get you what it used to
And, look, love don’t mean what it used to
And everybody and they momma on YouTube
Is it just me or is this unusual?

from J. Cole – A Star is Born (BET Performance) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Unlike “back in the day” where such things were uncommon and odd. These things are (as well as others) becoming a regular staple in life today. Cole questions if anyone else finds these new trends as odd, or is he the only one who realizes it. Times are changing.
