So put them egos to the side and get off them head trips
'Fore some cats pull out them heaters and make you headless

from Yasiin Bey – Got Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

If you want to survive and be able to stunt in the future, you have to check yourself. Someone riding an ego 24/7 is destined in Brooklyn and other hoods to die. If you refuse to get off of your self-perpetuated ego, you will soon find yourself the victim of a gruesome, decapitating murder, courtesy of a local “cat” and his 9mm.
