Fila sweats, 88 I rocked a mock neck

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

Meaning

Fila produced a lot of different kind of sweaters in the 80s, they were very popular in the projects as they were pretty affordable, but at the same time they weren’t THAT cheap, so it made Nas standout from the hood mass. The mock neck is a variation of the standard neck, which wears a bit higher.

When he started to rise as an artist, FILA even got in touch with him and arranged an interview with him.
