But these ain't even punchlines no more, I'm abusing tracks
Leaving instrumentals blue and black

from Joey BADA$$ (Ft. Capital STEEZ) – Survival Tactics Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

STEEZ extends the metaphor of “punchlines.” He “abuses” tracks to the point they are “blue and black” with bruises. .

In saying “But these ain’t even punchlines no more” he’s also saying that he’s not joking around anymore which is a paradox because he uses a punchline right after.
