Niggas’ll trade they soul to be Drake or J. Cole

from Game (Ft. Lil Wayne) – Red Nation Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Young men will do anything to become the next hot rapper like Drake or J. Cole. Although Drake was famously recruited by Lil Wayne and Game probably doesn’t mean to diss him personally (probably why he includes J. Cole), he does seem to set up a contrast between their “ear candy” catchy appeal and the rawer street-inspired persona of Tupac mentioned in the following line.
