50’s homies thinking they already made it with a small win and shit when 50 already got bigger plans ahead.

‘'Controlled substances’‘ refers to drugs and ’‘hand to hand’‘ refers to the act of selling it. 50 can’t envision his whole life revolving around petty drug dealing and wishes to move on to bigger things. ’‘White collar’‘ workers are those who work in offices and the term is associated with sophistication and grace.

Here caterpillars represents the people at the bottom in the hood trying to get by doing dirty work and the butterfly is the one who has spread his wings and now lives the lavish life at top (in the sky) and 50 has made this transition seem effortless.

This is a reference to a popular quote from the movie Scarface:

All I have in this word is my balls and my word and I don’t break them for nobody.

50 goes one step above Scarface and also has his instincts — that’s that animal ambition.

Through dealing drugs efficiently 50 obtained just enough wealth to make his way out of the hood and its poverty to make something for himself. As a result of this a whole new plate of possibilities open up for him and he can now continue his hustling on a larger level. 50 happens to be quite savvy and has had a lot of big business ventures over the years.

Considering where 50 started this wasn’t the realistic outcome for him and most men with a similar background either end up dead or in jail. With the proper hustler’s ambition 50 managed to beat the odds and come out a victor.

‘'The school of hard knocks’‘ is a phrase meaning the life lessons you acquire through the negative experiences in your life. Growing up 50 had a tough upbringing and was taught the way of survival in the streets rather than going to college and getting a formal eduction. Basically 50 studied ’‘Street Smarts 101’‘.

In the hood there are various blocks and corners you can conduct your hustling in, and every gang has their own ‘turf’, an area which they own. It’s important you claim your corner before anyone else takes it because a lot of people will fight for the best spots. The ‘'rats’‘ represent the snitches trying to bring 50 down and the ’‘wolves’‘ represent anyone who’s out to get 50 for either his wealth or his life. When hustling in the hood you need to be aware of your surroundings because everyone is out for the biggest oppurtunity and won’t hesitate to kill in order to achieve it.
