Shoot at your feet like spider, you a tap dancer
What am I amusing to you?
You better have that answer
The use of guns has been introduced to us through mass media such as movies our whole lives. We’ve all seen someone in a cartoon or something shoot a gun at someone else’s feet to make them dance just for amusement. Talib is also referencing a line in the movie “Goodfellas”, a film in which countless people are killed by the mafia.
Spider is the name of the character whose feet are shot at in Goodfellas.
