In case it cost my life, I balled like Walter White

from XV – Breaking Bad Lyrics on Rap Genius


XV compares his hustle and success to that of Walter White, the main character from the show Breaking Bad. After being diagnosed with lung cancer, Walt begins cooking crystal meth in a small-time operation to make sure his family lives comfortably after his death. He moves up through the ranks and becomes a kingpin of an empire, becoming a millionaire in the process. .

Also note the “balled/bald” wordplay. The chemotherapy caused Walt to lose the hair on his head (and look more like a badass). .
