Pick the weapon up and use it

from Joey BADA$$ (Ft. Nyck Caution) – Hotbox Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Ever hear of the phrase, “the pen is mightier than the sword”? Well in this case, the pen is mightier than the gun.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Nyck and Joey were raised to always be on their guard for any harmful souls. As an adolescent in the urban neighborhoods of the city, one way to protect yourself is to pick up a weapon, and get really good at using it.

Double entendre says a weapon can either mean a weapon of self-defence or a pen for writing flows. Genius.
