How could Nas be garbage? Semi-autos at your cartilage

from Nas – Ether Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas is challenging Jay-Z’s diss on “Takeover”:

Had a spark when you started, but now you’re just garbage

“Cartilage” is probably referring to the cartilage in someone’s ear, as he later explains that he’s got a gun “at the side of your dome”
