What’s up to Will? Shout out to O
That ain’t enough.. we gonna need a million more
"Kick in the door" Biggie flow
A key section to the song, and indeed to the whole album. Jay posits people like Will Smith and President Obama (who uses the “O” as his logo) — or Oprah — as members of the “new black elite” he talks about earlier in the song.
Will + O —> Willow Smith, who is signed to Jay’s label.
Rather than just keeping his success for himself, Jay wants young blacks to “kick in the door” barring them from success and enter this new elite in humungous numbers
Ever mindful of the past even while looking to the future, Hov pays tribute to his fallen friend Christopher Wallace with the “kick in the door” formulation here
