Rat-a-tat tat, rat-a-tat tat tat tat, I never hesitate to put a nigga on his back

from 50 Cent – Street King Energy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Reference to the Dr.Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg song Rat-Tat-Tat-Tat from Dre’s classic album The Chronic, with a close to identical hook:

Rat-tat-tat-tat tat ta tat like that, and I
Never hesitate to put a nigga on his back

Putting a nigga on his back is to kill someone, as their dead body would be on it’s back. 50 (and Snoop) never hesitate before murdering someone.
