I never have my head in the clouds cuz they could go gray
This is a really clever line.
Elzhi says he never has his head in the clouds dreaming and wishing, because both his hair and the clouds could go gray at any instant.
When hair turns gray, it’s either from old age (spending your whole life dreaming) or stress (when shit gets hard in his neighborhood). When clouds turn gray, it’s a sign that a storm is coming, and bad things are on the way.
So kids, be like Elzhi, and stay down to Earth.
