I'm not a warrior or barbarian type of nigga

from Redman – Rated R Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Warrior and barbarian refer to the times when the world was considered relatively uncivilized. The culture was often about killing to resolve conflicts, even if small, as opposed to the culture now where conflicts are attempted to be resolved by diplomacy and, if necessary, “civilized warfare”.

This line is admitting that he’s not some brute with a blood-lust, even though some of his acts seem to imply that he is.
