Trying to do this shit better than the niggas we grew up on

from J. Cole – Villematic Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Well if any of you were born in the last 10 years…you’re growin up on Soulja Boy…

But I’m pretty sure J. Cole is referencing the hip hop greats here — he is putting in the work to try and get his name mentioned with Biggie, Pac, Eminem, etc.
