He says he was gravy, I say I was jelly

from Lil Wayne – Abortion Lyrics on Rap Genius


Gravy means good , jelly is slang for jealous

Pac is somewhere chilling on a beach (for those illuminati conspiracy believers) and Wayne wishes he was there too. Pac is “retired” from the rap game, and maybe Wayne wants to retire in the more literal sense.

“Gravy” is also a wordplay on the word “grave”, since 2Pac is dead. “Gravy” in the sense of “all good” then foils the “grave” reference by simultaneously implying that Pac is alive and well. Thus the jelly/jealous wordplay implies that Wayne is jealous of Pac resting in death or somewhere on an island.
