Can I rock shine? Can I have a girl that's too fine?
Got a swell life, tell me will I lose mine?
Still in the perspective of blacks. When someone of color is wealthy or have nice clothes, car etc. They get questioned how they got it and if it was the illegal way. For instance driving a nice car will get you stopped by the police and asked for your registration proof. KKK will especially try to take out a wealthy black person.
Kind of in the essence — Can I Live?
