Nigga you ain't Nas, nigga you ain't Jay-Z

from Lupe Fiasco – SLR 2 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kendrick referenced being in the same conversation as Nas and Jay in his verse for “Control.” Lupe believes otherwise.

This is might also be a play off of Kendrick’s lines on the Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe Remix

Picture lil' ol' me giving a fuck for what a fuck nigga gotta say
Nigga you never be Jay, never be Nas, never be Snoop nor Dre

Kendrick was saying that people never thought he could be like Jay or Nas, but he proved them wrong. Lupe is attempting to put Kendrick in his place and would be saying he hasn’t earned that legendary status.
