Okay I'm straight up off my grandmama porch
Hollywood neva, I took the southernized approach
Collard green pockets but I southern fried the flow
Candied yam drop with some cornbread to throw

Meaning

This is a dope couple of lines because there are several plays on words. He’s saying he’s mainstream now, but will never lose his Southern roots and used staples of the Southern lifestyle to describe his newly found lifestyle.

For example, he used collared greens, candied yams and cornbread to describe his money/cars. Those are all known components to a Southern meal that were used represent his material items.

Even though he is mainstream now he didn’t sell out, or went “Hollywood”. He just kept making raw music and staying true got him successful. Real recognizes real
