Y'all wish I was frontin, I George Bush the button
The Black Album dropped shortly after the U.S. led operation in Iraq started in 2003; Jay compares his resoluteness to the president of the time, George W. Bush, who carried out a hawkish foreign policy following the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Like the mobsters in the previous lines, George W. Bush kills people in the desert. The comparison has a subtle but unmistakable political edge.
