Ladies and gentlemen of the court
In the hearing against The State of Hip-Hop Vs. Jay Electronica
I present: Exhibit C

from Jay Electronica – Exhibit C Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Exhibit C is perfect evidence that hip hop is alive and well…

In court, cases are named in the structure of “plaintiff vs. defendant,” and in criminal cases, “The state (or the people) of (Hip-Hop) vs. Defendant. The state or people prosecute the defendant based on the idea that the victim of the crime is society as a whole. Here, Jay aptly places himself as the "defendant” being charged by the “state of hip-hop.”
