But I ain’t 5’9” all the time, sometimes I’m just Ryan - a human being

from Slaughterhouse – The Other Side Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Sometimes, people tend to think that rappers are just rappers, they have no outside life and they just rap every single second of their life. We tend to mistake them for something else but humans. Royce touches this subject and says that he isn’t 5'9" all the time, which is part of his stage name “Royce da 5'9”“. He sometimes is just Ryan (his birth name), a human being, like everyone of us.
