Just make sure the plane you on is bigger than your carry-on baggage

from Jay Z (Ft. Blue Ivy Carter) – Glory Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Reference to Aaliyah’s plane crash, where they took a smaller plane in order to leave the island early, but the weight of the baggage contributed to the crash.

More universally, wherever you go in life, you should never let baggage (insecurities, hate, the pressure of having two wildly successful entertainment superstars as parents, etc.) keep you down. Fly above it.
