I'm ballin' like Mr. Clean
I gotta keep my kitchen clean

2 Chainz derived from Section 8 Live and Learn (It Will) by 2 Chainz (Ft. Dolla Boy & Pusha T)

Section 8 was part of the 1937 Housing Act which created rental housing projects where the money would go to a private landlord.

These communities would often be built in low-income neighborhoods, making Section 8 synonymous with the ghetto.
