Piece of American Pie they cut me, I can barely taste it
But I know it ain't 'bout shit cause my grandma ain't make it

from Big KRIT – Down & Out Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

KRIT’s economic well-being (slice of the economic pie) is so small it almost doesn’t matter. For another riff of the economic/ American pie trope, see this Jay-Z line from “Made In America.”

Yet, KRIT really wants nothing to do with the American vision of success, since his grandmother, who he’s spoken of in song before, didn’t bake that pie.
