You just can't bite the hand that feeds you
Especially when the hand's illegal

from Fabolous (Ft. Broadway & Paul Cain) – Drugs (Do This to Me) Lyrics on Rap Genius


“Can’t bite the hand that feeds you” is a common phrase. If you can’t bite the hand that feeds you, AND it’s illegal, then you REALLY shouldn’t bite it.

The illegal aspect is a reference to selling drugs (Fab was arrested in 2010 for having 500 pounds of Marijuana on his tour bus). If you bite the hand that “feeds” (supports) you, and you support yourself by selling drugs, then you are probably going to jail.
