Clowns get smoked about a thousand volts for selling pounds of coke

from Big L (Ft. Jay Z) – Seven-Minute Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Regular New Yorkers get robber but drug dealers are (or, at least seem to be) better targets. Because of their drug profits, they have more money to steal.

But, most drug dealers carry guns to protect themselves. Only dealers that don’t protect themselves are “clowns” (or idiots) and make the best targets.
