A quarter's on the loose
And I ain’t been out here getting my dollars worth
A play on the name of the album, a quarter (Joe budden) is on the loose, and Royce isn’t getting his dollars worth. If each member of slaughterhouse is one quarter, that would add up to one dollar. Since Joe Budden is on the loose, he’s not getting his dollars worth. He’s just getting 75 cents.
Royce is adding that, contrary to Joe who’s popping right now, he isn’t making the most he could for his own career.
