Rubies are expensive jewels like diamonds

She wanted diamonds but he brought her to Ruby Tuesday's so he's comparing the two as jewels and also saying he's broke/cheap or whatever

I think he's talking about the conscious rap. Like 'Always said if I rapped I'd say somethin' significant. But now I'm rappin' 'bout money, hoes and rims again'. Mos and Kweli were conscious rappers and he's kinda saying is it cool to have a superficial rap if he raps about getting Gold from those places (Africa)

In an early version of that song he says 'and George Bush gets paid off of all of that' so I think he means the government
