The NSX rental, don't be fooled, my game is mental

from Jay Z – Can I Live Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The car he’s rented for his little weekend getaway is an Acura NSX (rice rocket — but impressive)

Driving rental cars is a recurring theme in raps about selling crack, since it was a smart way for dealers not to be tracked when moving around the city

The way “NSX” is pronounced also sounds like “in excess”, which is a clever play on the lavish lifestyle as a hustler Jay espouses on this track.

But he also advises his adversaries, or anyone else, not to be fooled- based on the flash that he shows; he is both substance and style.
