I'm trying to make a million dollars out a quarter-ounce

from 2Pac – Str8 Ballin' Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Dealers “cut” (dilute) pure cocaine with Aspirin, baby laxative, etc. to increase their profit

Still, you’d NEVER be able to get to a million dollars with that technique; 2Pac is looking to the future, when he can re-invest his small-time drug profits into bigger wholesale purchases
