Why a nigga always want what he can't have?

from Jadakiss – Why? Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is not at all specific to the inner-city black man, nor can hip-hop culture actually be cited as a reason for this. Greed, and coveting your neighbors possessions are original sins that go back to the bible. Even when bling was sheep, men could be found killing in order to get that fly new fleece.
