I might buy a kilo for Chief Keef

from Jay Z – Open Letter Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

If the politicians want to put him behind bars, Jay-Z will actually commit a real crime. He’ll buy a kilo of cocaine for the price of rapper Chief Keef’s age, $17,000. Using numbers such as age to represent the kilo price for cocaine is something he has done before.

Jigga-man doesn’t see visiting a country on vacation as a crime, and he’s getting pissed for all the shit he’s taking for going somewhere with his wife and kid.

Jay-Z notoriously used to sell crack on the streets of NYC, so it’s fair to say he knows a thing or two about flooding the streets with hard drugs

Chief Keef later approved of the line on twitter

You can also read it as him literally offering to buy a kilo for Keef to distribute, as Keef is “closer” to the streets than Hov at this point.
