Oh my God, I hope y'all don't get seasick
As Jay explains in this video, this is a play on the homophone of sea and see:
In a literal sense, with all of these aquatic references, Jay hopes that you don’t become seasick.
According to Jay, with his wealth on display in the form of clothes, cards and jewellery, he hopes you that you don’t become jealous of what you see, therefore becoming “see sick”.
He says Oh my God, playing with the phrase, and the actual “Jesus piece” he mentions above.
Don’t worry if you didn’t get it, it took ages for Jay to explain it to Pharrell, and Timbaland still didn’t get it!
