Staggering out the club, dropping coins in the jitney

from Jay Electronica – Patents of Nobility Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This line relates to the previous line:

Tipsy, I got the game tipsy

Following this, the (rap) game is too drunk to drive home, which is why it pays cab or bus drivers to it home (“droppin' coins in the jitney”). A jitney is a cab or a bus.

This might also refer to the August Wilson play, Jitney.

Note: “Jitney” is an archaic name for a nickel (coin).
