Cause school ain't cut it, they cut out to puff smoke

from Joell Ortiz – Battle Cry Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Cut it = measure up, meet standards

The dealers in the previous line (cutting coke) didn’t think too fondly of school; it didn’t pertain to their career choice.

Cut out = Leave class
