I came into this world high as a bird
From second hand cocaine powder
I know it sounds absurd
I never tooted but its in my veins
Andre’s mother was addicted to cocaine and free base while she was pregnant with him.
More likely, it’s about growing up when cocaine was plaguing the black community. Andre feels that pain even though he never did it. He notes how it doesn’t sound like it makes sense because he nor his mother never “tooted” it, but it still affected him.
