Meaning

Emory Jones is Jay’s cousin who plead guilty to drug dealing and was sent to jail in January 2000. Hova already talked about him in “Do U Wanna Ride?”

and in “Clique”:

Lost my homie for a decade
Nigga down for like 12 years, ain’t hug his son since the second grade

He was recently released thanks to Jay’s help

The motion that he filed on August was accepted and Emory is now back home.
