These new niggas rappin' like they 2

from Lupe Fiasco – SLR 2 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is play on number 2. New rappers often think they are new 2Pac but in reality they rap like they are 2-year-old, and are #2, behind Lupe. It’s good to be confident, but there’s a line that shouldn’t be crossed. You might think that you are good, one of the best or maybe even the best, but never call names, ‘cause that automatically brings up direct comparisons to the name you mentioned and that makes you look like you are a two-year-old.

It could also mean they’re rapping like they are the shit, being that #2 is slang for defecating. The “Wheeeeeew shit” in the next line might support this theory.
