Translation: I'm the shit, least that what my neck say
Least that what my check say,
Both Jay’s jewelry (his neck) and his check (money) say he is the best in the game.
Jay also pronounces neck like “‘nects,” slang for connections, who he’s affiliated with in his drug dealing. This would be consistent with the theme of him turning the 62 to 125 and being the boss.
He could also be pronouncing it “nects” to sound like the “nets,” referencing the Brooklyn Nets NBA basketball of which he is a part-owner.
Trivia! Jay-Z is part owner of Translation LLC, the advertising agency that represents Budweiser, among others.
