Hustle hard, yeah it really ain't a game mane

from J. Cole (Ft. 50 Cent & Bas) – New York Times Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

You gotta hustle hard to make it big, especially in a city like New York. It’s not a game, so you got to be careful, people would do anything for money. Murder ain’t a thang for the opposition, so you best make sure it ain’t a thang for you.
