And I ain't tryna see no highway chase with Jake
In a 2010 interview Jay implies this actually happened on New Jersey Turnpike, going south from New York.
It’s notable that Jay says that he said “Jack” here to refer to the police, but it clearly sounds like he says “Jake.” His take on the name:
Jack is one of a million words for the boys in blue, but it’s particularly dismissive and used mostly in New York, so it works as a way of establishing the character of the narrator. He’s a slick New York Kid.
(Decoded, Page 61)
The most famous “Jake” is Detective Jake Styles from the TV show Jake and the Fatman.
