I landed in the sky, I fell from the streets

from DJ Khaled (Ft. Lil Wayne, Plies, Rick Ross & T-Pain) – Welcome To My Hood Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lil Wayne went from being broke in the streets to landing in the skies of success at the TOP of the rap-game.

This line is a clever paradox, since one can’t literaly fall from the street and land in the sky. Metaphorically, though, Wayne is defying gravity, the class system. He is an anomaly in American society, a man turned myth.
