The world is yours, the world is yours
This is a Scarface reference. In the movie — which is an inspiration to many rappers — Tony Montana’s motto is “The World is Yours”, a reflection of his drive to ball in spite of his humble beginnings

At the last minute, he fit it in there, I think at the mix. I didn’t know how he was gonna fit it in there, but it was perfect how he did it.
