But they worried 'bout Osama

from ScHoolboy Q – Raymond 1969 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Q is saying that Osama Bin Laden doesn’t have shit on him.

Schoolboy asserts that one of the world’s most evil terrorists pales in comparison to him.

Yet, Schoolboy alludes to a deeper message with the word “they”, an ambiguous label of those other than himself. They can reference the media and general public who were so terrified of a man they didn’t know the location of while ignoring the terrorism in the streets and inner-cities.
