Seems to be the only way to back you bastards up

from Kanye West (Ft. Bon Iver, Jay Z, Nicki Minaj & Rick Ross) – Monster Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

To keep people away, Jay-Z will have to massacre people i.e, fuck people up in the most dangerous way

Coupled with the previous line, it seems to mean a lot of things:

  1. He expects a war against his enemies, in which confrontation would be the only way to back them up.

  2. He just killed this song with his verse, thereby intimidating his enemies into backing up.

  3. He smells controversy brewing, due to the feuds his enemies make against him, and Hov realizes that publicity, either good or bad, seems to be the only way to back up or support his enemies careers, instead of their actual songs.

Because Hov’s enemies are whack. As fuck. At least according to him!
