Biggie is saying that he is about to make money and get big (blow up in this context means become popular very quickly, not actually explode), like the World Trade Center towers in New York City that were a symbol of U.S. financial power

widelian is right. Biggy is employing both meanings. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1993_World_Trade_Center_bombing

Play on words. Blow up as in immediate combustion with force and power, when coupled with getting paid ~ The manner in which his music will quickly amass him riches is akin to the manner in which the World Trade shattered when attacked. (pre-911)
