Scared of the future while I hop in the DeLorean
A reference to the classic 1980s trilogy Back to the Future
In the Back to the Future series, protaganists Marty Mcfly and Doctor Emmett Brown use a time-traveling DeLorean.
In Back to the Future II they use it to travel to the future. Similarly, Kanye isn’t afraid of the future as he knows his career will continue strong.
While the valedictorians are scared of the future because they are usually good at school, not real life — tieing it to the previous line.
