Well, I ain't passed the bar but I know a little bit
Enough that you won't illegally search my shit

from Jay Z – 99 Problems Lyrics on Rap Genius


Jay refers to the bar exam, a test which anyone who wants to become a lawyer must take after law school. He admits he has no professional experience, but knows enough about the law that he knows the police can’t search his car.

Jay, didn’t you ever watch Ghostbusters? If someone asks if you are somebody important, SAY YES!
