I'm tired of being broke and even worse
The upper class acts like they don't want me on this Earth

from Ab-Soul (Ft. Ashtrobot & Punch) – Beautiful Death Lyrics on Rap Genius


The rich will typically favor proportional taxation in America, which is viewed by it’s critics as regressive. That way, if you’re rich, you stay rich, and if you’re poor, you’ll stay poor. You’re thinking “this seems irrelevant”. You’re wrong! Those who are poor have higher rates of disease across the board, and therefore higher mortality rates.

Basically, if you’re poor, rich people don’t like you!

This also continues the reference to 2pac’s Changes, where the exact quote is “I’m tired of being poor, and even worse…”
