Tech on the dresser,) AK still in the bushes

from Jadakiss (Ft. Styles P) – In And Out Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Reference to Nas’s legendary line from “Represent” off of Illmatic and Spice-1’s equally iconic line from “187 Proof” off of the self-titled album Spice-1.

Nas is a rebel of the street corner // Pulling the tech out the dresser, police got me under pressure

More mail than the rest of the pushers // ‘Cause he got a Tech 9 in the bushes

Both Nas and Spice-1 are Hip Hop legends from their respective coasts. While the obvious meaning of the line is that both Jada and SP hold it down like it’s still the 90’s, they’re possibly also passively commenting on the old East Coast-West Coast rap beef that resulted in the deaths of two other legends from the West and the East.
