I know this crackhead who said she's got to smoke nice rock
And if it's good, she'll bring you customers in measuring pots
- If you please this crackhead with good crack rock, she will give you such good reputation with her fellow crackheads that you will need to use measuring pots to supply them all:
- Nas is saying that the customers will be “in measuring pots” because it implies that they are trapped and ‘on a plate’, being completely controlled by the dealers, i.e they will be hooked and bring in regular revenue.
“Bring you costumers in measuring pots!” is a reference to how they cook crack. It’s like saying “Bring you costumers by the dozen”.
