Get ya own dog, ya heard? That's my bitch

from Kanye West (Ft. Elly Jackson, Jay Z & Justin Vernon) – That's My Bitch Lyrics on Rap Genius


As any smart ass kid who tries to get away with using the slur after looking through the dictionary for the first time in their life knows, a bitch is a female dog

Jay’s line works on two levels depending on how you break it up. Either he’s saying “Get your own dog” like, literally, go find a canine companion, or “Get your own, dog” as in get your own girlfriend. Either way, that’s his bitch

Note also that, in a nod to what is likely his own discomfort with calling his superstar wife a bitch, he says the b-word almost inaudibly, after the hook starts

Just like Kanye opened the song with the Big Pun reference, Jay-Z is ending it with that, too. On It’s So Hard he says:

Get ya own, dog, YA HEARD?

Jay, of course, has a famous history of taking advantage of the many meanings of the word ‘bitch.’
