Meaning

Chino is well known as one of the kings of the NY graff scene.

Mos says he “gets up” like Chino; in graffiti to “get up” means to tag or otherwise put your name up on any certain place be it a tag, throwup, burner or piece. Mos is saying that he is getting up to say power to the people like Chino would be “getting up” by tagging a wall.
