"Give me the fortune, keep the fame," said my man Louis
I agreed, know what he mean because we live the truest lie
Clever line here, the truest lie implies that the fame rappers live in is true in that it is complete and comprehensive, but a lie in that it does not reveal the true person dropping rhymes.
“My man Louis” here refers to Louis Armstrong.
