When rappers say "one time for the .../two times for the ...", what are they referring to? If I'm watching a concert, what am I supposed to do?

J.Cole -- Before I'm Gone: "One time for the city... and two times for you."
Big Sean -- My Last: "One time for the baddest chick in the world..." or "One time for the West side"
Rick Ross -- The Transporter: "Two times for the boys that's bubblin' rock."
I'm sure this comes up in other types of music, but I'm the most familiar with hip hop.
