T,W,I s to the M The World Is Mine
I'mma shout from now till' 99

from Shaquille O'Neal (Ft. DJ Quik, Nate Dogg & Peter Gunz) – Strait Playin' Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

T.W.Is.M is Shaq’s abbreviation for the phrase “The world is mine,” most famous for it’s appearance in the 1983 major motion picture Scarface staring AL Pacino.

Shaq is letting the listener know that he plans on shouting the phrase until 1999, which was a year often used as a bench mark for something that is far off into the future, like Prince did in his song 1999. In other words, he plans on treating the world as his playground for decades to come.
