An open and shut situation
Cop gets got, the wanna blame it on my occupation

Meaning

Puns on the police shooting referenced above: the cop opened fire, and then the deceased’s casket was shut. When a cop shoots an innocent person, the police close ranks and defend him, treating it as a normal occurrence.

On the other hand, when someone shoots a police officer, the authorities and the media are likely to blame the act on violent hiphop music like the kind Scarface makes.
