Told em I finished school, then I started my own business
They said, "Oh you graduated?"
Nah I decided I was finished
Chasin yall dreams and what you got planned
Now I spit it so hot you got tanned
Recycled in: Kanye West — School Spirit off of The College Dropout
Ye dropped out of college, he was done with that shit and wanted to start his life (“Started my own business”) and chasing what all the people stayed in school for (money).
Whenever you get tanned naturally you’re always in a hot place, so Ye spitting heat figuratively results in his listeners getting tanned.
