Forgetting all I ever knew, convenient amnesia
"I suggest you call my lawyer, I know the procedure"

from Jay Z – Can I Live Lyrics on Rap Genius


He is conveniently feigning amnesia, telling the police that “he doesn’t remember” in response to questioning about his drug business

By asking for his lawyer, he is also invoking his 5th Amendment Miranda rights, which demonstrates his familiarity with criminal procedure
