And if we ball catch us,
A play on the saying that was administered by Magic and C-Murder in the song Ball ‘Till We Fall where you ball (or make money) until you die. Wayne could be asking his homies that if he is about to die from this money making schemes, please “catch” him before he dies.
Weezy also made this reference in his hook for Duffle Bag Boy.
Continuing from the Goodfellas line, at the climax of the movie, the majority of the characters are either caught by the police or killed by the mafia. Perhaps Wayne is insinuating that if Wayne and his homies are to be in the same boat as the Goodfellas, then Wayne will need some “catching” before he is sent to jail or dies.
Another meaning is for spectators or average people to make sure to catch Wayne & friends when they ball. This is also a play on the actual physical meaning of the word “ball”, and to “catch” it being one of the most common activities with a ball.
