I left yesterday, and I headed straight, up 78, to the A-T-L
These record sales done paid me well, so I'm smoking good, can't you smell?
Life is hell, till you drop a gem,

Meaning

He starts off riding the Timbo beat hard. Mentioning the interstate system in his home state (a common trope in rap and hip hop at the time). He then goes on to revell in his success (presumably off his couple of hits before the album dropped).
