At 40 I want to afford not to record bullshit
In my story, and Im mad young so Id rather do it now

from Kendrick Lamar – The Relevant Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

When he’ll hit 40, he wants to afford to write about whatever he wants; He don’t want to write about the things a label will impose on him, drugs, leans or fake past Compton gangbanging lifestyle. He wants to be creatively free.
