Mace niggas at Madison Square Garden
Jay uses the word “mace” as clever wordplay for “killin' em”. He interpolated Mase’s opening lines from Feel So Good in the previous 2 lines, and then refers to the weapon of the same name but different spelling.
This is in relation to his altercation at Madison Square Garden where one of Jay’s associates sprayed R Kelly with mace.
There’s a play on “mace” and “Mase,” because they used to have a beef in the ‘90s.
