A play off of the previous line.“Sparked” has a double meaning, as in lighting weed or setting things off. Unless Nas meant for “them” to refer to no one in particular, it can only mean “the NARCs”. “Slayin” would literally mean “killing”. And it would make sense for him to be slaughtering NARCs when they raid; that’s when he’s “heartless” (merciless), remember?
“Sparked” definitely has a double meaning here. To be more specific than the previously suggested “setting things off”, he’s likely referring to bullets (igniting gunpowder, propelling lead into Feds).
