For the finish I stretch
When they advance me this check
Could've bought my way to heaven, but I blow it on my neck
Instead,

Meaning

It’s obvious, even though he’s struggled, when he got his first advance from a record deal instead of being grateful and donating to a good cause, he spends it on jewelry.

Similar to a line by Kanye West:

I had a dream I could buy my way to heaven
When I awoke, I spent that on a necklace

cf. “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”
