Now these thugs actors all of a sudden

from Rick Ross (Ft. John Legend) – Rich Forever Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The same rappers who claim to be thugs are in Hollywood (i.e. Ice T’s “Cop Killer”). Now Ice plays a cop on Law and Order. (Whatever you have to do to pay the bills!)

This is also a subtle shot at Young Jeezy who starred in his own mini-movie entitled .38. This shot could also be directed towards Ross' former rival 50 Cent, who started as a gangsta rapper, and eventually starred in movies such as Get Rich or Die Tryin and All Things Fall Apart.
