But I guess my motto didn't lie

from Pro Era (Ft. Capital STEEZ, CJ Fly, Dirty Sanchez & Joey BADA$$) – Run or Fly Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Joey pays homage with this reference to fellow New Yorker Nas. Building off the previous line which talks about buying lotto tickets, Joey references the Nas line in “but i switched the motto, instead of saying fuck tomorrow that buck that bought a bottle coulda struck the lotto” in Life’s a Bitch. Even though Joey isn’t old enough to buy lotto tickets, he’s still planning his future and not wasting all his hard work on bottles.
