Them niggas probation, soon to be leavin' Rikers
Rikers Island is a prison in New York, referenced many times in hip-hop.
Once prisoners are on probation, they leave the island and go back to their homes but still under supervision.
When it comes to bars other rappers are like someone who is about to leave prison or on probation while Lupe is in this thing for life.
