In these days life is short, shots’a try to end you
And this game is like a sport, comp’ll try to pen you

Meaning

Living the life that Crooked is, being part of a supergroup like Slaughterhouse there’ll be people jealous of your success. Those same people could be those that try to end your life by taking shots at you. Rap is known to be a very competitive genre with so many rappers trying to claim the top spot, the competition will try to get to the top by trying to attack fellow rappers and start beef.
