All this fame and fortune leave you traumatized
Rozay denotes that money and fame can change a person that living a life of fame isn’t for everybody, because not everybody can live in the limelight.
As he goes on to denote later in the song: more money, more problems. You gotta have strong shoulders when you’re constantly in the spotlight, or you’ll end up like Lindsay Lohan. Success is heavy burden.
Not long after this song was released, Miami Heat champion LeBron James explained the pressure of fame gets to him sometimes. On a Facebook post, James said:
Man it’s hard to go out and have a good time these days! It’s cool though, it’s part of my life. Wouldn’t change anything(just saying). Been in the spotlight since I was 15. Sometimes u just wanna STOP!! But I refuse cause I have a commitment to the youth to inspire them!! That will keep me pushing forward and focused alone.
