Same niggas will catch a back-to-back, snatching your cracks in black
Nas will fire two shots in back-to-back, in rapid succession (pop! pop!) at any stickup kids he sees out — dressed in all-black like a stealthy ninja — trying to steal the drug dealers' crack supply at night to ensure he is undetected.
“Back-to-back” may also refer to back-to-back sentences, often doled out for violent crimes with multiple victims.
