The emphasis on making his parents proud reveals a deep sense of familial pride and duty.

He also offers practical financial advice: “Instead of blowin’ checks, invest it in everything you make. With that, I manifest, put that in my face.” This line advocates for wise investment over frivolous spending, highlighting the importance of financial literacy in achieving and maintaining success.

The final verse addresses broader societal challenges: “21 countries shit, not bad for a Black jack. I grew up with facts lacked, we do what we told shit. Don’t question the old heads. Don’t question police or see a piece to your forehead.” NatStar reflects on growing up in a restrictive environment where questioning authority was discouraged. The line “not bad for a Black jack” celebrates his achievements despite systemic obstacles faced by Black individuals.
