Fuck the fame, keep cheating on me, what I do, I took her back

from Jay Z (Ft. Justin Timberlake) – Holy Grail Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In his interview on The Breakfast Club, Hova specifically mentions this line:

That whole song is about fame and the way fame is fleeting…so that whole first verse is me complaining about it. The fame, she cheats on me. She hangs out with Kanye and Drake and J. Cole. What I do, I took her back, you know so when it’s my turn I take her back

He’s fed up with the fame and the consequences it holds. Especially how he works so hard for the fame, but its is busy sharing itself with plenty of other celebrities and he has to wait for his turn to take it back
