Tell them the game ain't only the score

from Common – Aquarius Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He uses the sports metaphors of ‘game’ and ‘score’ to tell his adversaries that there is more to the rap game than selling records.
Although there are always people who are more popular, more famous, and more chart-friendly than Common, there aren’t many people who are more consistent, smart, and lyrical.
