E

from Jay Z – It's Like That Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“E” is Jay’s dear friend Emory Jones. About a year after this song came out, Emory was sentenced to 16 years in prison for cocaine trafficking. During Emory’s time in prison, Jay wrote the song “Do U Wanna Ride" for him and eventually wrote a letter to a federal judge offering Emory employment at Roc Apparel Group upon his release, in a successful effort to get E’s sentence reduced.
