By the way, fuck your math
You ain't gotta count it my nigga I can add

from Jay Z – Somewhereinamerica Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Forbes is known for calculating rich people’s net worth but sometimes they get the calculations wrong. That’s why Jay is saying, “Fuck ya math.” He does not need a magazine to tell him how much he is worth; he can do that on his own.

Nielsen Soundscan, the entity responsible for tabulating sales for Billboard usage, announced they will not be counting the 1 million albums Hov sold to Samsung prior to the release. Jay says he doesn’t care because sales are sales. He doesnt need a plaque from Billboard to tell him hes sold a million albums.

The way he says it is, “By the way, fuck your mag,” addressing it towards Forbes who estimates how much he’s worth every year.
