Cause in my hood, niggas try to smoke you just like nicotine

from Meek Mill (Ft. John Legend, Nas & Rick Ross) – Maybach Curtains Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Having money in Meek’s hood was a death wish. People would try to kill anyone doing better, leaving dreams small. Buying anything flashy would lead to death, “smoking” by a jealous neighbor. The smoke from the bullet blast mimics smoke from nicotine-rich cigarettes and tells the truth: the murder was casual.
