When they be bussing 'nough
They thinkin' they thuggin' tough
But never do knuckle up
You in the gang, you bang
You drunk and touching every thang, you lame
Sucka, you cannot sustain the reign

from Lil Wayne (Ft. Andre 3000 & Tech N9ne) – Interlude Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In general, a lot of people start off and once they’re doing well they think they’re the best. In reality, many of these same people aren’t capable of/don’t want to take on anyone else. They also overestimate themselves.

Tech gives an example of this, using gangs. Many gangsters start thugging and think they’re bad but they haven’t done much at all. If you’re in a gang, do it well! Don’t half-step. Instead they overstep their reach, get involved in too much and can’t keep up what they do manage to do. The result? They lose their power.
