Guys playing basketball on the street. Two of them — a white and a black — start a squabble, and then the black says:
(....) a hundred bucks say I make you my bitch.
[to everyone around] Hear? He's trying to make ends meet for his cut in welfare. You're f***king on!
American History X, film

I know what "make ends meet" and "cut in welfare" mean, but what is it about when joined by "for"?

Thanks.
