I push the gas on the Mercedes, nigga
Came in this game with a Rolie chain, and a dream
The Jig Is Up (Dump'n) by Kendrick Lamar

Like most rappers, Kendrick started out in Compton which he self-describes in his album title as a M.A.A.D City and then slowly moved towards success, as he discusses in this line, having to start out with a Rolex bracelet (which he discusses in the intro of this song) and then moving towards sucess as he’s now pushing gas on a Mercedes, an expensive brand car.

It seems like he had a bit more than a “dollar and a dream” when he first started out.
