There is really no one outside of himself that he can rely on; and while he has homies, he needs to keep them at a distance by putting them on payroll and not trusting them just as friends. You can also read the lyric the other way: those who are in his inner circle are so close to him that he wants them to not only be friends but he wants to give back to them and throw them cash, too.
