Swiftly 'bout to stick a sweet dick in your sweetheart
Then get some groceries off my geeker EBT card
Thuggin by Freddie Gibbs (Ft. Madlib)

An EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) card is used to spend welfare benefits, such as food stamps.

Not only will he fuck your girlfriend, he’ll spend the welfare money from one of his junkies to buy dinner afterwards.

Danny Brown spits some similar, more socially conscious lines on Ab-Soul’s Terrorist Threats.

Soulo & Danny are also both on Gibbs' album.

My uncle last bitch put him on the glass dick
Tried to rob a man to feed his habit, he got blasted
Thuggin by Freddie Gibbs (Ft. Madlib)

Addiction is like a disease that spreads from one person to another. His Uncle had a junkie girlfriend that got him addicted to smoking crack (crack pipes are sometimes referred to as ‘glass dick’).

Eventually his Uncle’s addiction took over and he became a fiend, robbing people to pay for more crack. His Uncle died when the man he was trying to rob shot and killed him.

Cause in the past
My low class black ass would serve my own fucking family members
I hate to say it, ain't no need to be discreet
If she don't cop from me, she get it from a nigga up the street
Thuggin by Freddie Gibbs (Ft. Madlib)

He’s saying that in the past, he was even willing sell to his family — though he hates to admit it. It’s not like he can stop them from doing it, either: if they don’t get it from Freddie, they’re gonna get it from the other dealers in his hood. He hates the reality of this, but he accepts it and exploits it.
