Another day to face, I'm share cropping in the paper chase

from Little Brother – Speed Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Sharecropping is a system of agriculture in which a landowner allows a tenant to use the land in return for a share of the crop produced on the land.

In this sense, he probably works as a part of a company that takes away from his wages or time. Or he’s just plain working his ass off and it hasn’t been paying off yet. So he feels like he’s sharecropping since this is from LB’s way earlier work and Phonte wasn’t the pimp that he is today yet.
