Let's stick up the world and split it 50/50, uh-huh
Let's take the dough and stay real jiggy, uh-huh

from Jay Z – Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

And I let the world know that the city is mine

Jay Z and his crew plan on taking over the world eventually: they’re here for the long-term riches and bitches, not just for some occasional hustling.

Jiggy is a term that has now mostly been replaced by “ballin'” and was borrowed from the Will Smith single “Gettin' Jiggy With it” released the year before. Spend the money the way you want but remember, don’t blow your dough on hotties!
