"Yeah son, where the gun?" It's at home wit the dope
"Oh you a smart ass, hah?" Nah, that's my li'l joke
The police officer assumes that because a black man is driving an expensive vehicle, that he must have a firearm in the SUV. Nelly jokingly responds that he’s left the gun at home with his drugs, to which the officer (rightfully) calls Nelly a smart ass.
This is a reference to a Robin Harris stand-up joke, wherein he says a police officer asks him where’s his dope. He replies at home with the gun. Although Nelly is a smart ass, it’s a small nod to Robin Harris.
