Told cancer, I'm bad to the bone too, I'm prone to snap off

from Common – Sum Shit I Wrote Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It’s pretty badass to tell off cancer, the #2 killer in America after heart disease. Bone cancer is a common variety, which allows him to play on the phrase “bad to the bone.” If you have bone cancer, your bones might be “prone to snap off.”
