Nigga you survived, you still getting bigger
Jay is telling himself that he has made it through tougher times so he shouldn’t even worry about what he does or doesn’t have, the face that he’s here to rap this track is enough to be grateful for.
If that wasn’t enough for him, he should remember that even though he’s been around for a while he is still getting more popular and accepted by those who didn’t like him earlier in his career. He moved from the CEO of Roc-A-Fella Records to a sports agent and mogul.
It also refers to the fact that Jay-Z is regarded to many as what Biggie & 2Pac might have become, if they were still alive. He survived that ‘90s era as their successors, never fell off, and continues to solidify himself as a legend.
