I'm gettin' money while you stay on the shelf, just like a statuette

from Action Bronson (Ft. Sean Price & Twin Gambino) – Blood of the Goat Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

While Bronson is out in the world making his living, his rival rappers are getting “put on the shelf,” or being forgotten and put off for later by fans and their record labels. The way these rappers stay on a “shelf” is similar to how a decorative statuette would.
