Stunting was new to me
But now we killing paper, fuck it I might just shoot a G
Since most of his life (and still to this day) he’s been a more introverted black nerd, he wasn’t used to the fame and attention he’s been garnering today. As a self-proclaimed one-percenter, he’s now able to spend a thousand dollars just for the fun of it and metaphorically “kill” money by “shooting” a g/grand (or G as in gun to continue the gun metaphor)
A g is a gangster, he is saying he will kill a gangster and think nothing of it because he has so much money i.e bail money. He is using this as a warning for the next line.
