Them other boys well known for letting niggas starve

from Rick Ross (Ft. Drake & Lil Reese) – Us Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A reference to the entire G-Unit era as a whole. During that time, G-Unit was the highest selling act (50, Yayo, Buck, Game, & Lloyd Banks all went platinum, not counting the G-Unit album) and would put out albums during other artists' release dates which would force them to push back their albums (thus losing money) in order to avoid poor record sales and competition with G-Unit. Also, 50 supposedly pushed back Styles P’s album single-handedly by speaking to Koch. As you can see, these guys were pretty selfish, unlike rap now where many artists work together and feature each other on albums and mixtapes.

This is also a shot at Jeezy. Jeezy’s CTE label was home to Freddie Gibbs, who had never been able to release an album during his tenure under Jeezy. Jeezy’s been criticized for the way he mismanaged his artists, especially Gangsta Gibbs. By the end of 2012, Gibbs left CTE.
