But fuck it, you gotta give credit where it's due
Cause you ain't gon' like the karma when it's set up on you
It can get you on your medical, fuck you up in the decimals
Or get you 2 to 3 for residue found it your retinue
Karma is a muthaf**ka. Give Joey his props or karma will get you back with things like hurting you, also causing you to go go debt from hospital bills, or giving you jail time for failing a drug test. .
Regarding the last line (2 to 3 for residue found in your retinue), the word retinue is a synonym for posse or entourage so Joey is saying you can get caught up for drugs found among your entourage.
