We started out mopping floors
And now we front row at the awards

from Rick Ross (Ft. Dr. Dre & Jay Z) – 3 Kings Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Dr. Dre, Rick Ross and Jay-Z went from rags (or dope dealing, as the case may be) to riches

Also, Dr. Dre was once part of the World Class Wrecking Cru. In a nightclub, a wrecking crew was always the group of DJ’s that performed last before closing. Other DJs could leave with only their crates but Wrecking Crews broke down the equipment at the end of the night. If you helped the club owner straighten up a bit, you made more money.
