Happiness for a gangsta, ain't no love in these streets
Rounding out the reference to the 12 Jewels of Islam, Jay-Z also makes a clever Beatles reference. Through the last line, Hova says that some peace (a firearm) is happiness for a gangsta. This is a nod to Happiness Is A Warm Gun by The Beatles. It is also a nod to his song “Heart of the City (Ain’t No Love)” from The Blueprint.
