Put you on the nigga news, UPN and 11

from Jay Z – Threat Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The United Paramount Network (UPN) was a broadcast television network that merged with The WB to become The CW in 2006. Jay references both—-UPN by name, and WB by its number on the NYC station dial, 11.

While both UPN and WB were on the air, they were known for comedies geared toward black audiences, such as Moesha and Girlfriends (UPN) and Wayans Bros. and Sister, Sister (WB).

Furthermore, only a small number of local UPN and WB affiliates produced local news programs; Jay jokes that if they did, they would be the “nigga news,” with a special focus on black issues missing from mainstream broadcasts.
