Nigga drunk person speak a sober tune
*I can't go on this way* (sung overlapping last line)
(Fuck dat, I can't do it man)

from Beanie Sigel (Ft. Freeway & Young Chris) – I Can't Go on This Way Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

he says “make a drunk person sing a sober tune”. i think he means that drowning out his sorrows with the purple drink does'nt distance his mind far enough from his financial stress.

also what is interesting to note is the sampled voice singing “i can’t go on this way”, in between the line mentioned above and “when he says fuck that, i can’t do it man”. i feel like he is using the sample to say he can’t go on drinking away his problems. it does'nt work like that.
