They shoulda never let you 'round cake
Round cake / AROUND cake. Those clowns shouldn’t be around his kind of money.
Doubles as a reference to a type of cake that most of us are familiar with; cakes that are round in shape.
On Watch the Throne, Jay references The Chappelle Show by saying “fuck your awards like Eddie Murphy’s couch”
Here it sounds as though Jay might be slightly referencing the same episode, where Rick James yells “they never shoulda gave you niggas money!” …“they shoulda never let you round cake”
Jay does feel as though many of these rappers are ignorant and don’t know how to handle themselves around money.
