Ayo, I know you like it, like it, I’m it
You might be in the building, but I’ve built this shit
Eve is saying to all the new rap females in the game that while you may be “in the building” doing great things, do not forget the ones who came before you. Eve is one of the pioneer female rappers along with Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, and many more, and those generation of rappers she was in were the originators or the “builders” of this “building”. In other words, don’t forget the ones who came before you and helped build a lane you are now in.
