And I don't have a green thumb and neither do my niggas

from Oddisee – Way In Way Out Lyrics on Rap Genius


Smart wordplay here by Oddisee. Earlier in the verse, he rapped about horticultural things like grass and roots. In keeping with this theme, he states that “he doesn’t have a green thumb,” which means he doesn’t have a knack for gardening. Of more importance of course is the altering definition of the word ‘green,’ whereby green means money, and he ain’t got none!
