Jay, Puff, Shyne: cases was caught

from Cam'ron (Ft. Jay Z & Juelz Santana) – Welcome to New York City Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

To “catch a case” is to be prosecuted or face the threat of prosecution: Jay-Z caught a case for stabbing Lance “Un” Rivera in a nightclub, and Puff Daddy and Shyne both caught cases for a shoot-out in a club (although only Shyne ended up doing time)

So in New York, even the rappers get in trouble and are to be taken seriously
