Change don't change us
“Change” is a metaphor for money.
Lupe is saying that achieving success has not changed him as a person.
In addition to the money metaphor, Lupe Fiasco is making a bold statement regarding his immutability. Even “change” itself won’t cause Lupe Fiasco to change. He remains the same Lupe even though his environment or circumstance might change.
