I guess I’m getting high off my own supply

from Kanye West (Ft. Frank Ocean & Jay Z) – Made in America Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Originally a reference from the movie Scarface, it most famously refers to this line from NWA’s Dopeman.

While this normally refers to a drug dealer getting addicted to the product he or she sells, Kanye is referring to the fact that he liked his own beats too much to sell. Somehow, the rap game reminds me of the crack game.

Kanye could also be using “high” to signify his rise to Rap super-stardom, often enabled by his signature, high quality production, where his beats are, again, his “supply.”
