For the love of money, son, I'm giving lead showers
This is a play on the phrase “for the love of God”. But this song documents the transition to loving money more than God. Because of that, he is willing to shoot up rival gangs (“give lead showers”) to protect his money.
Also plays on weather vocabulary, since it could be heard as
For the love of money, sun
I’m giving lead showers (as in rain)
Just another example of Jay mixing in some wordplay to strengthen the lyricism of the song.
