Get yours first, them other niggas secondary
That type of illin' that be filling up the cemetary

from Black Star – Thieves in the Night Lyrics on Rap Genius


When everyone buys into a selfish mentality, everyone is fucked.

Mos saying:

“Get yours first, them other niggas secondary”

might be another way Mos and Talib view NYC. Mostly the drug game and them mentality of every man for himself; Killing each other just means more customers and money for you to get.
