S it’s crabs in the bucket you heard that phrase
But everybody got a chance to shower and praise

Meaning

crabs in a bucket is a phrase to describe drug addicts or people in the “hood”. crabs when put into a bucket will pull each other down back into the bucket trying to climb out. so basically its a “if i’m gonna die you are too” analogy. crabs really do pull each other down back inside the buckets when one is about to get out.
