You either spit it raw, or sell crack and dribble the ball

from Meek Mill – Hip Hop Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In the hood he grew up in… you only 3 ways to make money and be successful.

1- Rap (exactly like meek)

2- Trap (sell drugs)

3- Sports (mostly basketball)

It’s also a reference to a line by the late great notorious big on “things done changed” off his first lp …“ cos the streets is a short stop, either you slanging crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot” big said that back in 1993. meek mill confirms that’s still how the streets are even today.
