There's few writers in my cypher

from Jay Z (Ft. Pharrell Williams) – So Ambitious Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

There are few writers who can create lyrics like he can.

The line could also be interpreted as going a bit deeper than the literal meaning of “writers”. It could be speaking of how one has to look past familiar successful “beaten paths” to success in the predominately African-American neighborhoods (NBA, Moving Weight, Rapping) and thus leads us to question if these are our only options.
