But a lot of niggas dyin', so my 9 with the shits
When someone has “the shits,” you can’t exactly hold it in. It sprays everywhere. So, this line builds on the paranoia Chance has had due to how dangerous Chicago is. A lot of people he knows have died, so he isn’t about to let the same happen to him.
In Chicago, if somebody is “with the shits,” this means they’re not about some BS. If somebody tries them, they will react. The term shits can also refer to drugs or more specifically weed. People might try to rob him for that, so he needs extra protection.
