Then maybe he stop savin' all the good beats for himself
Rocafella's only niggas that helped

from Kanye West (Ft. Jessica Rivera) – Last Call Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kanye was recognized as a great producer in his early days, but no one was really impressed with his rapping.

He was accused of “saving all the good beats for himself.” He’s saying that he was allowed to release this album with people thinking he’d flop so that he can stop trying to rap and give others on the label the beats he would have rapped on.

Rocafella finally gave him the deal and got his career in the spotlight

According to John Monopoly, West’s friend, manager and business partner:

“[The album didn’t] have a particular start date. He’s been gathering beats for years. He was always producing with the intention of being a rapper. There’s beats on the album he’s been literally saving for himself for years.”
