Niggas' knives are double-edged
Jay’s had a series of fallouts with some of his compadres from his past due to their differences in either business models or Jay just deciding to go in a different direction.
Here, he’s probably speaking on Dehaven, Dame Dash and Beanie Siegel who are the most famously documented fallouts he’s had. Jay is saying this is partly the price of fame, a double edged sword is saying fame has its good and bad sides.
