What's the meaning of 'life's a bitch and then u die'?
This is a pessimistic view of life as a struggle right up to the point of death and then you die.
I agree with the Lord of the Commas. "Bitch" is a somewhat coarse slang word that means a something that is difficult, a struggle, very unpleasant, hard to succeed at, complicated... It can be applied to a specific problem or to a situation.
Thomas Hobbes said life is "solitary, poor, nasty brutish and short" - this is just a modern rewording of that.
I prefer "Life's a beach and then you die!", although I have heard "life's a bitch and then you marry one!"
Separate names with a comma.
