I used to duck shots but now I eat quail

from Jay Z (Ft. Jeezy) – Real As It Gets Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Rich people eat quail because it’s “gamey” and — at least with rich Republicans — maybe they shot it themselves

Jay-Z used to “duck shots” in the ghetto (get it? Quack?) but now he eats Alsatian roasted quail at fancy restaurants

This is also a reference to an incident in 2006 when vice-president Dick Cheney accidentally shot a colleague while hunting for quail

3 ducked shots just so he could enjoy some duck meat?“ Duck Shots” as in duck hunting and Quail which is often hunted. He went from rags to riches.
