I'm a hassa,

from Jay Z – Picasso Baby Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Hassa is a slang for an asshole, corrupted person, or someone who abuses their position in society for personal gains. Living the life without thinking, a limitless lifestyle.

One of Jay-Z’s many Scarface references: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-Fx4K79IPw

The word “Hassa” is mispronounced by Tony Montana with his Cuban accent, but what he refers to (and therefore Jay-Z does as well) is the Yiddish word “Chazer” (pronounced KHAZ-er), meaning pig.

Frequently used by Ashkenazi Jews (Eastern Europe origins) about people who are either dirty in a legal/ethical sense or “don’t fly straight” )
