Living life without a care, mean pokerface
But I'm forced to play solitaire 'till I get up out of here

from The Roots – Walk Alone Lyrics on Rap Genius


Truck has stern resolve like that of a poker player, perhaps developed from his upbringing in the hard conditions of the ghetto, an environment which wasn’t conducive for displaying much emotion if one is to survive. The solitaire reference indicates that he feels he must go at this life alone, until he dies.
