The phrase simply means that you are doing extremely well and are very successful. Success, fame and fortune will inevitably come with a large amount of haters. This is not a bad thing, without haters there is no one to prove wrong. Understanding that hate is a sign of envy and jealously should be used to motivate you. Just remember, haters gonna hate, that just means you're doing well.
"Yoo dude did you see Dan Bilzerian's snap story!? Looks like he was hunting warthogs out of a chopper down in Texas with like five hot mami's, friggin epic!"

"No, I hate Dan Bilzerian. His company is gonna fail and he'll be a broke ass cat like me."

Dan Bilzerian has haters on the payroll and they are working for free.
