I look in my fridge, my shit lookin' scarce
I got a few kids, we need some shit on the shelf
I get a knock at the door, they say my rent overdue
Ross noted that he wrote this song from the mindset of “somebody who may not have much”.
This person knows that he has no food, but has a family to feed. On top that, he’s been given an eviction notice because he has failed to pay his rent.
Ergo, this man will resort to desperate measures in order to feed his family and keep a roof over their heads. In the next line, he notes how his partners sell dope, to make sure they don’t fall into the same situation he has.
