Some go low to get high
Some people would do immoral things to reach the top and have fortune, whether it be lying, cheating, stealing, killing or anything else you can think of.
Another possible interpretation is that some people go really low in life just get high from drugs. eg. heroin and other highly addictive drugs force many to take regrettable actions on themselves and others.
