The hood on my first album cover under plastic

from Jadakiss (Ft. Nas) – What If Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Albums are now sold as CDs with a plastic wrap around the case. This line references the difference between Nas' best album (Illmatic) and arguably his worst album (Nastradamus)…On Nastradamu, Nas wears a hood on the album cover. He is asking what if Nastradamaus was his debut album. If it was, no one would have found him to be a great rapper and no one would have given his future albums a chance
