Uh, only hope I had was selling dope
In “Self-Made,” Meek Millz dropped a line saying “Dropped out of school/ Never made it to the 12th grade”. I guess it’s safe to say this is a continuation to that line. The only way forward in the hood for him was to sell white..
Also “No hope in dope” is a famous anti-drug slogan of the 90’s. Popularized through bumper stickers and a ‘Saved by the Bell’ episode. Being raised ‘by the stop sign’ (street corner) selling dope became the his only hope to reach his ambitions.
