But now in '95 I must survive as a man on my own
Fuck around with Fatlip yes ya get blown

from The Pharcyde – Runnin' Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

His father was not there to look after and protect him throughout his childhood, but he didn’t complain because he knew he had to stand up on his own two feet.
After a while he had reached a point where he was known for being tough, and that you wouldn’t want to fuck around with him.
