But y'all better read my lips, I don't spit raps this ill
For you to just hack and steal and leak my shit, so peep my drift

from Bad Meets Evil (Ft. Claret Jai) – Take from Me Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Why are y'all listening to this before June 14, the official album release date! Go buy his shit once it hits stores!!

Much like many other artistes (Kanye and Lupe have been vocal about it too), Royce detests having his material leaked. He’s not working so hard just for people to steal his product, oftentimes before it’s even finished.

He’s specifically referencing a twitter exchange with the infamous “Koolo” who leaked the “Straight from the Vault” mixtape as well as both Echo and Living Proof (and due to the leaks those songs were made bonus tracks instead of included as official tracks)
