But they small as a shanty in a African village
Soft as cotton candy we assassins and killers

from Nas – Everybody's Crazy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Even though Nas' enemies try to act tough; Nas knows that in reality they are jealous softies. So, Nas isn’t afraid of them because his crew are hardened murderers from the projects, they will deal with these frauds easily.

Note the contrast between his enemies pretending they are skyscrapers in the last line, when in reality they are just small African villages.
