Bad bitch, she a masterpiece
Got a bad bitch, she a master; peace
In “Picasso Baby,” Jay namechecks the Mona Lisa, a famous painting of Da Vinci’s known for its subject’s subtly beautiful smile.
Jay’s all sweet with it, but Rick’s saying his bitch is a masterpiece for, er, different reasons. She’s a master piece of ass. Also she can “mash the piece,” or knows how to fire a gun. Hov confirms this by adding a gun sound to the end of the song.
The first line “Bad bitch, she a masterpiece” is a reference to his watch. Specifically the Rolex model ‘Masterpiece’. Which he refers to as being ‘bad’. The Masterpiece is a popular model among rappers, as numerous rappers have made reference to it.
The second line is indeed about his girl. So the pun is that he says the same line twice (although he switched it up) but have a different meaning.
Ross also says the word “piece” differently the second time, as if he was saying “peace” — an allusion to the ending of the song. A bit of subtle wordplay by The Boss.
