Thinking if Biggie can make it through it, man then I can

from Childish Gambino – Hold You Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Notorious BIG was one of CG’s role models. CG grew up in the projects, and BIG made it out of the projects and became wealthy and successful.

In “Sky’s the Limit” Biggie talks about the struggles of growing up poor, and specifically talks about the pressures to wear clothes that fit in, and the impending persecution that one would face if their gear wasn’t up to par. Childish draws parallels between the experiences Biggie narrates and those of his own life.
