You never settle for nothing, but money is what you preach
Another possible Ma$e reference two lines up, as he quit rap to become a minister/preacher.
Hoodie’s playing with the idea of hypocrisy. People who settle for nothing, accept that their satisfaction will be incomplete. Preaching about money is an oxymoron, seeing as holy speakers aren’t supposed to idolize currency. While thrive for something that’ll make you feel empty in the end. Essentially they both bring the same thing. Unhappiness.
