Times got hard was selling soap
When cash was low he would sell crack instead of coke because it’s cheaper.
Or, Meek was literally selling soap. When times got hard, instead of selling crack, he would sell soap. This is called whoop. When soap is put in the freezer and hardens, it looks just like crack. Usually the buyer will just look at it and drive off, but will later find out its not real.
