Damn, that's fucked up. I should've listened when my mama told me
That, if you play now, you gonna suffer later
Figured she was talking yang yang, so I payed her no attention
And kept missing the point she tried to poke me with
The doper that I get, the more I'm feeling broke and shit
André’s mother tried to convince him to stay in school and focus on his grades when he told her he planned on dropping out to become a rapper. At the time he thought it was just the standard “stay in school, don’t do drugs” speech so he didn’t pay much attention. But now that he looks back he realizes that his mother was right, and he wasted a lot of his time and money chasing things that didn’t really matter when he could have been learning.
