At dinner with Hov
Hoping that he pass the baton, he just pass the Patron

from Wale (Ft. J. Cole & Melanie Fiona) – Beautiful Bliss Lyrics on Rap Genius


J. Cole hopes Jay-Z, whose record label he’s signed to, would retire and pass on his legacy to him. Cole uses the similar sounding/looking words (patron/baton) to illustrate his subtle dissapointment in the fact that HOV is not ready to retire.

Although Hov did not pass the baton, Nas however passed the baton to J. Cole later in Let Nas Down Remix:

So you ain’t let Nas down
It’s just part of the game, becoming a rap king, my nigga
