Nah, nah, these niggas is lunching
If we think of success as only measured by your money
Cuz money never lasts, in fact it's only last
On the list of impactful things one can ask for

from Wale – The Perfect Plan Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Rap is a highly money oriented genre. Wealth becomes the final goal for many striving to make it in this lucrative business of ours.

In response, Wale flips some anti-materialism. If you break it down, Money is only a survival need. We use it to gain comforts, and it diminishes just as quickly as we get it. This, Wale argues, should be given the same priority as food or water. Everyone needs water, but no-one is chasing it down the way they chase money.

P.S: ‘Lunching’ is DC slang for something ridiculous.
