Ain't no Uzis made in Harlem! Not one of us in here owns a poppy field! This thing is bigger than Immortal Technique. This is big business. This is the American way."

from Immortal Technique – Peruvian Cocaine Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Gangsters aren’t the only ones responsible for the drug trade: guns and drugs have to be made and grown somewhere, so there must be thousands more people involved. It’s a huge business, like the great American industries. The American business philosophy drives the drug trade.

Tech puts his own name over “Nino Brown” in the dialogue to personalize the material, which is obviously of great importance to him, and rightfully so.
