What's a circus without you clown niggas?

from Kanye West (Ft. Ghostface Killah & Pusha T) – New God Flow Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

You can’t have a ringleader without the clowns and the performers.

He’s referring to the rap game as a circus, and you can’t have a real circus without clowns, the clowns allow the artists to stand out with talent instead. The Young Money crew are the clowns of rap.

Perhaps the circus is YMCMB and the clown is Lil Wayne.
