    This song is about going into a thrift shop and buying unwanted clothes, blankets, broken keyboards, sports equipment, etc, from a thrift shop.

    its about how you can look good wearing what you want, you don't need a bunch of money and you dont have to wear gucci or prada or the pinkys up brands too look good, he can rock a $20 outfit while other rappers wear 50000000 dollar clothes
