Y'all almost want to start a revolution

from Jay Z – Open Letter Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Speaking to all of his critics, Jay is saying that they are overreacting so much to his visit that they might as well start a revolution to get what they want, and through the context of the song he is comparing that little revolution to the Cuban Revolution.

The first line also echoes Revolution 1 especially with the “you know” starting the second line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrkwgTBrW78
