I guess the money should've changed him
I guess I should've forgot where I came from

from Kanye West – Can't Tell Me Nothing Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kanye is mocking people who believe that money will change them into better, more successful people. While unfortunate, it is very true that people in these communities look at money as the only way to escape the hood and “forget where they came from”. He is sending a message, making fun of the people that sell out just for money
