Too much green you can't talk in my hue
Jay-Z “spits green” — while that is usually the sign of a really bad throat infection, in Jay’s case it means that his rapping earns him a lot of money — in this case, the line is read as “[I have] too much green…”
He also is saying “green” as in envy. Other rappers would be envious of him, but can’t talk in the same manner, or “hue.” Here, the line is read as “[You have] too much green…”
On another level Jay-Z is saying that his competitors are too “green” or inexperienced to talk in his hue — they have “too much green” to challenge a veteran like Jay.
Thus, Jay-Z is positing that no emcee has the experience, money or talent he possesses.
