Back like Rose like Mike, no

from Vic Mensa (Ft. Beldina & Rockie Fresh) – Time Is Money Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Vic plays off of “back” in reference to two Chicago basketball legends who made famous comebacks:

Derrick Rose was injured in the first game of the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and sat out the entire 2012-13 season, but has stated he will be ready for the first game of the 2013-14 season.

Michael Jordan retired from the sport of basketball after the 1992-93 season to take up baseball, in honor of his murdered father and the sport which he played. He announced his return to the NBA at the end of the 1993-94 with the use of only two words.

He also retired after winning his 6th championship in the 1996-97 season, only to return for a stint in the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons, for which he donated a sum of his salary to victims of the 9/11 Twin Towers attacks.
