So I'mma, keep it on 'til I see a billion dollars

from Nas (Ft. Mazy) – The Don Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas claims to want to keep rapping until he makes a billion dollars from it.
Considering Nas’s net worth is apparently around 35 Million, this seems to be a claim that he’s going to continue to rap until he dies, a common claim that shows severe dedication to the rap game.

This line is a carry-on from the previous one regarding the islamic hadeeth. Since it says that ink is worth more than blood, he plays with that idea and claims that he will keep writing rhymes until he sees a billion dollars aka since the prophet said writing is worth more than blood, he’d rather write to make money than to live in the streets and die as a martyr.
