You niggas can't see me, but never overlook me
Weezy is shorter than average, but don’t judge his rapping skill on his height.
To not be able to “see” someone is Black slang for not being on their level. It stems from gambling. To “see” someone in a gambling sense means to match their bet. Ex: “I see your $100 and raise you $50.” If you can’t “see” someone in a gambling sense, it means that you don’t have enough money to match their bet. To “see” has the same connotation and origin as the slang term to “fade”.
In the dice game craps, to “fade” someone means to bet directly against the shooter. So if someone can’t “fade” you this means they can’t match your bet or either you’ve taken all of their money while they were betting against you.
So when rappers say someone can’t “see” or “fade” them, it means this person is not on their level.
