We did the booty up, I told the Bitch she Betta Have My Money
Or step to the AMG

from Common – Communism Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

From promising to jack up Jill’s booty, he moves to name-checking uber-corny dance rapper AMG, referring to two songs (The Booty Up and Bitch Better Have My Money). It’s unstated, but there is a contrast between AMG’s juvenile antics and the sharp, punning wordplay and realness of Resurrection. Common may associate the sex rap antics of AMG with his first album, mocked periodically on this song, though in fairness to Common Soul By the Pound is a pretty solid effort.

This may also play on the 3rd Bass song Steppin' To The A.M. Original meaning of “keep you steppin' to the A.M” is “keep you partying to the morning,” so “told the bitch she betta have my money… or step to the A.M” seems to be a threat to his bitch that she had better get “his money,” even if it takes all night.
