Why you tryna stunt, you need to play your own position

from Mac Miller – Loud Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Mac Miller is calling out the broke people that act like they got enough money to try and impress people, when in reality it’s all fake. Instead of doing that they need to focus on their problems that they have and fix it, so that maybe one day they can actually have the stuff they are bragging about.

Also, “stunt” is similar to the term “ballin'”, which in hip hop means to be the life of the party basically. “Ballin'” has been linked to literal sports in hip hop before, and in sports, each player has it’s own position.
