This rap shit is his house
In fact he's the cellar
The underground is his sanctum boy
He's a dweller
He only go up them stairs when it's time to eat
Let the Beat Build Freestyle by Royce Da 5'9"

Royce saying that he is an underground rapper and he likes it that way. When he spits the line:

He only go up them stairs when it’s time to eat

He means that every now and then he makes a commercial song that will do well on the charts to make money to feed his family, but then it’s straight back to making songs for the streets

This is also a play on cellar/seller referring back to a few lines ago

[Hook]
I'm grindin' till I'm tired
Cause you ain't grindin' until you die
That's way I'm grindin'
That's why
I'm losin' my mind
I spit through the day to get through the night
God lord I'm the shit
You niggas know I'm lethal
I'm just wonderin' why
You wanna think I'm nice
What the fuck you niggas tryna do tonight?
Motherfucker I'm nice
I'm Nice by Royce Da 5'9"

A similar hook to the one Lil Wayne spit on the original

And I’m grindin til I’m tired
Cause they said you ain’t grindin til you tired
So I’m grindin with my eyes wide, looking to find
A way through the day, a light for the night
Dear Lord: you done took so many of my people
I’m just wondering why you haven’t taken my life
Like what the hell am I doing right?
My life
