A million haters want me dead, forced to carry a gat
"But you's a seven-time felon, what you doin wit that?"
It's a Catch-22, either you lose or you lose
That's the way the game structured, for real, niggas to suffer

from T.I. (Ft. Jamie Foxx) – Live in the Sky Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is a catch-22: In order to protect himself from people trying to kill him, he needs to carry a gun. Yet if he carries a gun, he’ll go back to prison for violating his parole. There’s no winning for T.I., and that’s exactly how it was set up to keep people down like him.
