On the ocean, I'm in heaven
Yachting, Ocean 11
Possibly a slight nod to “Heaven”, another song on the album.
Hov could be talking about being on top of the rap world and coasting through life now. He’s accomplished a lot in his life, both musically and personally: a life fit for royalty. Jay-Z is a king, with a beautiful queen and eventual heir to the throne.
The last line “Ocean 11” captures the entire meaning of the entire song. Throughout the track as well as on commercial about this song, he spoke his past life of crime and how it’s afforded him the opportunity to transition into rap and make legal money (and more money), but it still follows him wherever he goes.
Oceans 11 is a head nod to the the movie that was created where the cast were all intelligent crooks that we able to pull off a heist (supposedly the last one, but the box office brought them back), where once they were finished, they’d make a large amount of money then go straight.
This echos on what Jay was talking about throughout his song, “Allure."
