Saddest shit, is I'm bad as it
Even though Childish doesn’t want to be materialistic, he still feels himself going back to rapping about money. Shows reluctance to the way his life is.
It also seems he is incapable of being that way. A lot of Gambino’s songs are about relationships with others and himself rather than money or cars, (like other rappers). He’s saying that he’s actually bad at being materialistic since he values things that are invaluable, (love, acceptance, respect, etc.).
