Up in 1st class, laugh even though it's not funny
See a white man wonder how the fuck I got money
While he sit at coach, hate to see me walk past 'im
Young black pants sag, headphones blastin'
Know what he askin', "how did he manage?"
Cole begins the second verse of this epic story by recalling a time when he was traveling on a plane seated in first class. A white man, sitting economy aka coach class, is envious and wonders how Cole got money to be travelling in first class; As everyone knows, travelling first class costs a pretty penny.
The black guy in the front and the white guy in the back…See the irony?!
