Skateboardin' down at Washington Square
Lookin' for quarters
Maybe afford a falafel for dinner, ugh
I’m so broke man,
This line is similar in setting and concept to a line in CG’s “I’m On It”:
Walking ‘round NYU, Looking for a dollar Too proud to ask my friends or my struggling father
So I skate around the city for a couple hours
Dreaming up a day that I could say this world is ours
Typical day in the life of a broke college kid trying to follow his dreams.
There is a famous falafel shop, Mamoun’s, a staple of NYU, where Gambino studied.. The falafel sandwiches are $2.50, which is cheap.
