It's my life
It's my pain and my struggle
The song that I sing to you is my everything
Treat my first like my last, and my last like my first
And my thirst is the same as when I came
It's my joy and my tears and the laughter it brings to me
It's my everything

from Jay Z – My 1st Song Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

His thirst for making songs and writing raps is the same as when he got into rapping, music still brings him the same feelings. Through his rap he also told his story, his problems when he was a kid and how he became the person he is today.

Jay presumably felt that it was important to leave the rap game with the same passion that he came in with, which is why this track was supposed to be the last one of Jay-Z’s career.
