The bigger the cap, the bigger the peeling
Quote from another Ice Cube song, “Steady Mobbin.” Also in reference to MC Ren, who always wore a black Raiders cap. Also, meaning that the bigger your head is, the more damage will be done when someone shoots you in it, from the slang expression “peel your cap” which means to blast your head off.
Could also mean that the cap referring to the bullet caliber size. Where the bigger the peeling would mean that the bigger the caliber the more damage it will cause.
