I brought it back to papi, ain't trying to take no losses
He focuses on my emotionless young dealer face then pauses
He gives me powder, he has faith in Nas' ambitions to distribute coke
Because, as he explained in the prior line, the coke he was trying to sell wasn’t good, he took it back to the guy he got it from. .
Nas tells him that he refuses to sell it because he can’t make a profit, and the man respects Nas for having the balls to do that, and knows that Nas really wants to sell it. So he gives him more coke, presumably better, which Nas continues to sell.
