Talking bout what we gonna be when we grow up
I said what you wanna be, she said, "Alive"
Andre is asking the girl about what wants to do when she’s older, but she replies that all she worried about is being alive by then. This really suprised Dre since this wasn’t what he meant by the question, but is still a good answer. This is similar to the John Lennon quote
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.
