You see over seas is what they building Impalas
While we’re working in the streets cause a job not promised

Meaning

Many businesses in the United States station factories and markets outside of the country in order to ensure cheap, but efficient means of manufacturing. This raises a lot of speculation and tension because the men and women that receive jobs overseas steal the jobs that should be given to the men and women of the United States. We live in a corrupt economy where material products and money consume everyone’s life.
