Had opportunity went from Hoodshock to Hood-chic
But it ain't what you cop, it's about what you keep

from Lauryn Hill – Final Hour Lyrics on Rap Genius


Lauryn had the opportunity to prosper and better herself and understands that the knowledge one gains (keeps) is more valuable than the precarious, temporary, and imperfect material things that one may (cop) in this life.
