Everybody knows I'm ballin, and to God
Gotta keep myself from fall-in, but it's hard
Pac juxtaposes a classic braggadocio line with a line concerning his relationship with God and not wishing to go out of favor, and eventually to hell. Then he concludes the thought with “but it’s hard” which could refer to either the ‘ballin’ or ‘fallin’ lines, or both. It’s open for interpretation.
