Standing at my podium, I'm trying to watch my sodium
The chemical name for salt is Sodium Chloride.
Sodium is a metaphor for cocaine, which Jeezy claims to have dealt prior to his rap career. Being salty is slang for hating on someone too, so maybe Jeezy is trying to cut down on hating the player.
Centuries ago, people used to get paid in salt, as salt was one of the most useful things in those days. Jeezy could be referring to ‘watching his money’, as he has so much of it now, and everyone around him wants a bit of it.
Of course it could just be in reference to his actual Sodium intake as well.
