I'd die in the bed I made 'fore I lay with a love I loathe

from The Roots – Walk Alone Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This alludes to the saying “sleep in the bed you’ve made” meaning take responsibility for your own actions instead of blaming it on someone else. He would rather be honest with himself then to go after a dream that couldn’t happen because of a mistake he’s made in the past.
