Same shit a rich white mo'fucka laugh at
Well laugh on white man, I ain't paid as you
But I bet your rims ain't the same age as you
A rich white business man would laugh at the the price of the iced out Rolex that Cole’s got on, but even though Cole’s not as wealthy, he hasn’t had to work nearly as long to build his wealth.
“But I bet your rims ain’t the same age as you” is referring to the size of the rims on a car compared to the age of the person who bought it. A lot of young black men (20-26) like to put rims on their cars to stand out. Most of the time the size of those rims are 20-26 inches. “I bet your rims ain’t the same age as you” Can be Cole saying “At least I still have life ahead of me as well as money”.
The rich white man might also be laughing at the fact that black rappers usually waste money on extravagance instead of acting in a safer way, like building an investment portfolio, but J. Cole’s response to the white man laughing at all the petty stuff he buys is basically, “I’m young and I’m getting it nigga. How about you?” (Rich white men are usually associated with the idea that they’re really old and in that case what good is their money to them).
