Mix the D'USSE with the reefer

from Jay Z (Ft. Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Nas & Swizz Beatz) – BBC Lyrics on Rap Genius


D’USSE is a brand of cognac that Jay-Z has recently taken a liking to/ been paid by Bacardi to endorse. This year at the Grammys Jay-Z was drinking his D’USSE straight out of one of the trophies he took home that night. D’USSE is a V.S.O.P., which means it’s been aged at least four years, and we know Jay’s affinity for the number four.

Remember everything looks better in slow motion

This line lost Nas his $1 million sponsorship deal with Henessey; he begged Jay Z to take the line out of the song after he realized what he had done; Jay Z refused (what an asshole!)

Nas even recorded an alternative verse the next day; Jay Z refused to use it.

I’m guessing Jay Z does dick stuff like this (even though he has $500 million) because he is jealous of Nas' good looks (he looks like Joe Camel, after all)…. Now they just scratch/censor the word on for instance Spotify.
