Things we see on the screen that's not ours
But these niggas from the hood so these dreams not far

from Kanye West (Ft. Adam Levine) – Heard 'Em Say Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

On television you see the life rappers have, with all their cars, money, etc, that you don’t have. But, many rappers are from the hood, or low-income areas, so it would seem that these things or “dreams” are not that hard to attain, when in actuality they don’t come easy.

Just remember, the people highest up got the lowest self esteem!
