Like I'm the president, but this ain't the Takeover
Jay-Z was president of Def Jam at the time this record came out. President also suggests the exercise of power, military coups, etc., hence the wordplay with “takeover.”
For the next few bars, the instrumental from “Takeover” are heard in the background, making the line “this ain’t the Takeover” ironic.
