Chains is cool to cop but more important is lawyer fees

from Jay Z – Never Change Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It’s a good feeling to blow money on nice things but it’s better to play safe and hoard a few G for the aspects of the game that will save yo ass.

Alternatively, the alliteration of “chains is cool to cop” and “change is cool to cop(s)” could both be meant to be taken out of this. More important than the chains and paying off cops, is lawyer fees. That’s how it is and will always be..
