If the shape change again everybody woulda start laugh

from Nas (Ft. Damian Marley) – Patience (Sabali) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Things we hold as a certain truth for one generation may suddenly be disproved, however you would be ridiculed by those who feel the current standard is correct, i.e., when Galileo suggested the earth was round he was ridiculed and laughed at, and hence, “if the shape change again….start laugh”, he’s saying if someone comes and says it’s no longer round, current science would laugh him away
