Tank on empty, whipping my mamma's Volvo

from Kanye West – The Glory Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kanye had to “whip” (a gallant word for “drive”, used sarcastically here) his mom’s car when he was broke (at least it’s safe!)

Apparently borrowing the Volvo really fucked with Kanye’s brain: in “Run This Town”, Kanye says that he has now (years later) “bought my whole family whips; no Volvos”

Is Kanye trying to foment a boycott of Sweden?
