Only gotta drive for the moment
Gambino has to push himself (or undergo a journey) now to attain everything he wants later.
In the story, he has to quickly get to Oakland to solidify his relationship with his girl.
In life, he has so much he wants to do that he has to go on a “drive” (see definition 2) if he wants to amount to anything or satisfy his ambition.
